Installation issue with NuTyx xfce version
« on: Tue Jul 26 06:56:50 2022 »
I'm trying to install NuTYX  for the first time I copied the iso with balena etcher and I also tried with Multiwriter on a usb stick when I choose  22.07.XFCE4 UEFI NORMAL
this message show up in the terminal:

Starting initrd
10.1274491 /dev/loopO:Can't open blockdev
starting version 246

it stops there and does not install I waited for more than one hour nothing happened   Please any help why it will not install ?

My best regards

Giuseppe

Hello Batmanxx1

Welcome to NuTyX

I think those windows tools are not that good for copying the ISO.

You need to choose one that really use the equivalent command in Windows of "dd" linux command.

Good luck

No no not at all.
If you can use the 'dd' command like recommended in the documentation (from your other distribution)
is the best choice

A single google research:

https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/dd-command-linux/

or in the official NuTyX documentation:

So how does it work once I download the script install-nutyx  after lsblk -S   ? I am missing something?  I have to copy this into the other linux distribution teminal that I have already installed correct. What is the correct process?

No no it's much much more simple:
You do everything from your installed distribution, regardless what it is:

Open a terminal and do followings commands:
  • Download the ISO you want for example for XFCE4:
Code: [Select]
wget https://sourceforge.net/projects/nutyx/files/NuTyX_x86_64-22.07.0-XFCE4.iso
  • Check the signature:
Code: [Select]
sha1sum NuTyX_x86_64-22.07.0-XFCE4.iso
  • You identify the USB  key with the command:
Code: [Select]
sudo lsblk -S
  • and finally you dd the ISO on the USB key
Code: [Select]
sudo dd if=NuTyX_x86_64-22.07.0-XFCE4.iso of=/dev/<name_of_your_key> status=progress

    Ok  download the iso from sourceforge (check signature) and then just copy as it is  sha1sum NuTyX_x86_64-22.07.0-XFCE4.iso into the terminal ? I think I've understood the other two commands

    Please what would be the process instead for KDE

    Replace XFCE4 with KDE5

    Please I only forgot that I have two drives one is 250gb and the other 500gb after the command in the terminal sudo lsblk -S  what is the command to choose the right drive for example the 500gb to install NuTyx

    DO NOT USE DD on your HardDrive
    It will erase them.

    You need to insert your USB key first then run

    Code: [Select]
    sudo lsblk -Sto identify your usb key as /dev/sdX
