Re: Debian Install Problem
Hi, I'm new to the list. I'm trying to install Debian on an i386 machine, and
I've gotten it working, but now when I try to reinstall after I had some
problems, it keeps telling me there was a problem installing the base system,
that, or the installer refuses to let me configure the base system-- just
install it again.
Any ideas? ..
My guess is that you're installing via floppies; this is a common error
with floppies. Reimage the affected floppy on a different floppy (I once
had to go through four floppies before getting a good image). Floppies
used during the base install have to be FLAWLESS. Even floppies that
seem to be perfectly good for other uses may fail.
If you're not installing from floppies, let us know more details.
