Uh-oh.. tried install of A4.22 (from within another A4.22 installed from CD). I saw it working its way through the package names, but in the end only aaa_base and vlconfig2 made it to the target partition. Two more attempts yielded same result.

LOL!.. not only was it fast, but also efficient. I tried another install without rebooting first, and the whole working partition got wiped clean. That's why my alpha testing is done on dedicated machine.  Wink

I got similar results:
Tried installing A22 from A21, the first time installer told me that I either had a corrupt hard drive(scared me there for a second) or bad partition. Tried again. Now that was a real bad idea as it turns out - now I get kernel panic while booting A21 Shocked

So that was it was. I installed from my /usr/local/ partition and when it was finished
/usr/local was absolutely clean.  Luckily I have  a good back-up of that important partition
so damage was just time lost.

Can I try the beta version now safely again with vinstall-iso? I have no other way
at the moment.

I did not wait for an answer, downloaded BETA this morning, tried to install
again with vinstall-iso-ng and paid the price:

partition /usr/local wiped clean again Huh Huh Huh it seems in split seconds
and nothing installed.

the script is updated. please download and try again.
It is important that you reboot between running this script, especially if it doesn't complete successfully the first time.

Thanks it worked this time, posting out of BETA with dillo.

I really like this good old way of installing. Never had a love for GUI installer.
The whole installation including setup and rebooting took about 50 minutes.

Interesting /root was all set to my-user-name:1000, therefore could not log-in. Chown to
root:root and all worked. I had not added a user yet.
