Repeat test of yesterday’s and 1864787 again.
Same box, but using BRTFS today
- dell [optiplex] 755 (c2d-e6850, 5gb, amd/ati radeon rv516/x1300/x1550)
Only tried a single install (with format) which failed, then rebooted & as with last time, used KDE Partition Manager to format unknown partition to BTRFS, then repeated install except this time I used “KEEP” (instead of ‘format’) and it worked.
I didn’t upload anything to launchpad, but as today I’m also testing
mkusb persistence I may have some details on the installation media if helpful (I don’t believe there is anything useful there, and I believe the mkusb media does not impact/influence this; yesterday was not a persistent image)
I may continue repeating this install daily, or every so often & log here… for pattern purposes at least.
I couldn’t recall how I wrote yesterday’s ISO to media (I just know it wasn’t persistence), so I re-ran today’s test, switching to XFS, but with media written with the command
sudo dd bs=4M oflag=sync status=progress of=/dev/sdb if=/de2900/lubuntu_64/hirsute-desktop-amd64.iso
and again failure when formatting… I’ll now reboot & use KDE partition manager to prepare partition & just ‘keep’ (instead of ‘format’) and I expect it to succeed.
