    Unable to install elive !!!


    i guess during the burning of the iso, something failed. after loading elive
    up, i click on the installer icon and i get this little box saying:

    /advanced tab/
    elive installer stopped running unexpectedly

    /error information/
    an ext code of 1 was returned from sudo eliveinstaller

    /output data/

    i really don't have that info handy, maybe i should dowload it again
    or try reburning it, i don't know. please advice, leo

    It seems I'm still stuck. I'd used nero for my first cd and after chatting with a friend, he adviced to use alcohol 120. I did exactly as he adviced, elive booted just fine, except when clicking on the installer icon, now nothing happens; it's acting like the installer was empty. even though having spent money for 2 cd's which had to be trashed, i feel a little upset about not being able to install elive.

    any suggestions?

    thanks

    Here's a HowTo you can use to make sure you download and burn your image to the CD correctly:

    Let us know how it goes.

    Ok, I tried burning the image once again with nero and it burned just fine. It booted up fine. When I clicked on the installer, here's the exact error I get:

    Elive installer stopped running unexpectedly

    Error information
    an ext code of 1 was returned from sudo eliveinstaller

    Output Data
    Start installer
    Unmounting possible mounted partitions
    The Old Elive system lists as:

    Selection of a partitioner

    (then to the right it shows)

    Error logs
    /usr/bin/zenity:error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/libcairo.so2: invalid ELF header
    /usr/bin/zenity:error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/libcairo.so2: invalid ELF header

    /usr/bin/zenity:error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/libcairo.so2: invalid ELF header

    3 wasted cd's so far...
    I don't think I'm burning the image incorrectly, i just follow instructions (burn image>select image>burn at 4x, etc)
    I downloaded the image from linuxtracker, twice. I just don't know what I'm doing wrong.

    I'm not sure what those errors mean, but it still sounds like maybe a corrupted download or CD to me.

    Just curious... did the md5sums check out properly before you burned the image to disk?

    I couldn't check md5sums because after downloading and burning I just erased the .iso. I'll just download it somewhere else, I believe the tracker was corrupt or something corrupted my download. I'll post again once i've gotten a new copy.

    Thanks for helping ozar, I guess it's just a matter of time before I can get this to work.
