Re: PPC Desktop installer not running to completion


I believe this is a duplicate of Bug #1256588 that I reported back in December (and you confirmed.)

I'm looking at the 2014-03-18 image for Lubuntu Desktop PPC and
the installer starts and runs normally up until just after the
password and user name are collected.  After that, the dialog box /
window just disappears and the mouse pointer stays as a spinning
disc indefinitely. I'll try some different installation medium
tomorrow but wonder for now if anyone else has seen such behavior
with the current installer.

Hi Lars,

there has / is work being done on the greeter... the proposed one had
to be killed via ALT + CTRL + T using a kill -9. Julien has released
some new stuff today which sorts out the firefox bug. Let the
autobuild of the ISO's occur on 19th March
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/Testing/#When_do_they_build.3F so
that we know we have a 'clean' ISO to play with.



Hi, Phill,

Thanks. That'll be tonight then. I'll probably be able squeeze one test

By the way, do you know where I could find any thing about the radeonfb: configuration that is missing from the boot process of the Desktop and
the installed system on the Alternate?


Ok.  I've tried the 2014-03-19 PPC Desktop image and get the same
result.  It stops just after the user name and password is collected.


The Live session seems to work OK.
