It has been a long day of trying to install. I am pretty exhausted at this point so I though that I would write this post. For years I have been using PCLOS and have enjoyed it eminence. Today I find myself back into the world of Window, not by my choice. I have tried to install the latest version of PCLOS with 2 live cd's; the latest greatest versions and the mini-me version. The live CD's boot up as normal, but when I try to install, drake takes a dump. Actually, anything involving drake takes a dump. PCC - hardware, well, it takes a dump. I receive a message that says drake quit expectantly.
I am hoping that someone high up 'the food chain' reads this and can look past the frustration in my wording. What happened? PCLOS used to be 'racially simple". really, it was amazing. install were smooth. it was reliable and a pleasure. Hell, I reserved just a little bit of my HD for windows, just incase something happened. Now today, it in the most important partition that I have. The beta version of kde4 crapped out with a (/temp being full issue) and my planned fresh install has met with disaster. All because drake refuses to do it's job - allow me to install the OS. Hell, drake refuses to even run.
I am sorry if I am pissing anyone off but, I am not a programmer, but rather an end user. Install means install. simple, like in the old days of PCLOS.
I even tried launching the live cd, doing a full update (in memory) and trying to install, but still, nothing. Considering that this very machine hase been running PCLOS for 4-5 years I do not feel that it is a hardware problem at all.
Any feedback is invited. Ban me if you feel that my words are too harsh. Personally, I just want to get this OS on my machine again.
