Titel: Updated installation guide for nightly?  BeitragVerfasst am: 23.10.2014, 14:38 Uhr

Hello! Before I begin with my question I just want to say that I really like Kanotix. I have used it quite a few times in the past and decided to revisit it. I was really happy to see the nightlies based on Jessie and the KDE "Special" packages.

The latest nightlies of Spitfire work great on my system in live mode, and I have been debating installing it. I wanted to test install in Vbox just to see how the installer works, but it is quite different from what I remember. There used to be a simple option to choose the hard drive and the installer performed all of the partitioning for you.

Now, I only see the option to launch Gparted, fdisk, etc on the partition. I have never been good with setting up partitions. If I simply create a solid EXT4 partition on the drive and choose it during installation, will the installer create boot, home, root and swap partitions for me? Or is this all manual?

And if so, can someone post a step by step for how a generic installation should be handled? The installation sticky is a *little* old Smilie

Thanks in advance!

Wow, 55 views and no response.

Anyone care to write up a quick installation guide for myself and the other 55 people that do not know how to install the nightly?

The Installer create this, except swap on that partition.
Advanced way is to create partitions before, as example 30GB for root, rest for home an mount them in advanced settings.
If needed also create swap-partition.

I tried this (created a root and home directory) and the installer appeared to see them, but did not work properly. It went by in a few seconds and said "done"...of course corrupting the HD. This installer stinks. What ever happened to the good ol' installer that actually worked?
