After being forced by a full / (root) partition (apparently there was not enough space left to do an update) to do a reinstall of Mageia, I´ve come accross enough problems/ changes that I´ve decided to abandon it for yourselves.
However during the, vector linux, install both my keyboard and mouse die. As in neither respond..... even the caps lock and number lock don´t respond.
Doesn´t matter which of the choices I choose both the keyboard and mouse are dead at the second screen. (the one where the choice is between advanced or otherwise).
I´ve tried both 7.1 light and 64 7.1 light and get the same response.
The system is 2t HD, of which 47g is / , 4 g ram , swap is 12g , the rest /home. Bought the mb this year.
With the command line install I get a million lines of text, the last of which indicates a kernel panic and within the screen it thereś also something about unable to mount the file system.
Yet rebooting into mageia there´s no such problem.
I know the printout would be helpful, but with a dead keyboard and mouse things get difficult.
So has anyone got an idea about how to keep the mouse and keyboard alive during the install?
Edit to add.
It took some looking about to find them but I managed to find the md5sum and confirmed them as correct. Don´t understand why the md5sums are not listed on the download page.
