Titel: Grub seems to have problem while installing Kanotix2013  BeitragVerfasst am: 23.11.2013, 22:24 Uhr

Hello, I installed Kanotix2013 from CD onto a computer which has dual WindowsXP/Fedora OS.

The installer started nicely asking for root password, username, ...., and recognizing the Linux partition, installed Kanotix in that partition.

Then grub took over to create the boot and went into long pause. Next morning a message was saying that Grub wrote the boot onto /dev/sda and it took 689 minutes and 26 seconds to install !

Now, when I switch on the PC, the grub menu shows no Kanotix, but shows Fedora 2.6.31.6.166.fc12.i686 or other.
The "other" is Windows xp which starts normally. Fedora on the other hand, never starts. One reason for choosing Kanotix, apart from Kanotix being a magnificent OS [i'm working with its persistent stick memory], was the long pause of Fedora. I'd appreciate your solution to this issue.
I should say that I'm not familiar with sophisticated Linux commands.
thanks, bob

Hello Kano,

I typed the recommended commands on a terminal in the CD-live session:

Try 'modprobe efivars' as root.

Well i dont see a problem for grub on your box, should be possible to install to /dev/sda but NOT to root partition. Maybe get a new iso from !nightly (with all updates) put it on a stick and try again.

I don't see the "nightly" version in the download page: http://kanotix.de/module-Downloads.html
I'd appreciate it if you indicate the nightly location.
Thanks

Hello, the nightly version 29-11-2013 was burned on DVD and started a live session. Then activated kanotix-install. Acritox installer 0.2.33 started smoothly. Again at 91% point, Grub "installing boot manager to the selected target [/dev/sda]" took very long time. A message at the end said installation completed and took 711minutes, 23sec. While Grub was working, the others including iceweasel were super slow.

After the install, the live session does not shut down. Have to power off the box. Once the DVD is out and the box is switched on again, the Grub shows Fedora and others, but not Kanotix.

It appears that while installing, Grub is searching for an item that is not there. I'd appreciate your guides. Thanks.

Is there a key that user can press to trigger diagnostic messages to be output during the Grub stage?

hi, while Kanotix installation is in progress, IRC does not start. I guess the current memory of 1GB in my box is insufficient and has to be increased in near future for both Installer and IRC work concurrently.

Acritox, does version "kanotix32-acritox-nightly-KDE-special.iso" print more diagnostic while installing, than the normal version. I'm looking for a version that print more info in order to see what Grub is waiting for so many hours?

Ok, you could set your onboard vga to 64 mb then you have got more free ram. You wont loose vga speed as it is slow as hell anyway. Your cpu would be 64 bit btw. so you could use kanotix64 (but get a bit more ram) and preferred a pci-e gfx card (like a passive nv 610 or so).
