^ Yes Obi-Wan, Yes

On the python questions, I have no idea.. seems backwards compatibility has taken a backseat in the Debian world and seems more a question for the developers of the installer

mtools is stock installed in VSIDO

I am not sure on the gpt question, if I understand it all you would have to wipe everything to go to a gpt partition table so if you have to do the same with an msdos table, why would you?  As to if I am missing a msdos partition table, these machines and V-Box setup have always had the exact same msdos partition tables from the beginning...

The solution (create a msdos partition table while in LiveCD) seems as if that is the issue, but how is that possible if there always was a partition table and the April 2018 ISO's no doubt see the partitions and partition table

 ??? ??? ???

This is the complete error when trying to install.. Note that it is a call from python 2.7 to the python parted partition script

Code: [Select]
File "/usr/share/linstaller/linstaller/modules/partdisks/front/glade/", line 2643, in manual_frame_creator
    elif name and
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/parted/", line 135, in get_name
    return self.getPedPartition().get_name()
_ped.PartitionException: msdos disk labels do not support partition names.

I am saying I have what I need to check on build levels and nothing new has happened in development..

Sorry for the mass confusion

In the end I think this is a kernel issue but I cannot confirm it yet

Nothing new with the installer development at all.. I am stuck back at square one as to why or how this is possible or to fix

It doesn't matter at this point anyway filip.. nothing has changed in the installer that would address the issue we are having covered here where no drives are showing up to be installed to in the gparted section unless you completely wipe everything before installing

Hey Filip I hope all is well with you

I am getting the following error trying to build the latest

Code: [Select]
dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us
dpkg-buildpackage: error: cannot open file debian/changelog: No such file or directory

It looks like it may be due to Debian changing it's folder names from debian to debianpkg?

Just spitballing, I am not sure and Google isn't much help

Great looking enviros Jedi and RatMan

I believe there will be an update to the installer that has this resolved and I will dig into that this weekend

Success but at a price


Was able to install after I completely wiped both drives on the V-Box setup

So in order to install VSIDO you have to destroy everything?


There has to be a better solution...

^ I believe that is the same thing RatMan said on several occasions.. I am confused and it is most like due to lack of sleep and crossposting to the wrong thread..

In your situation, you never even make it to the Manual partition page, do you get to the page to fill user setup and PW's?

I apologize to you Luke for assuming you were having the same issues I was.. it is completely different and I see that now

I did trace an error message to the installer.. the last message I got running the installer as root was 'msdos disk labels do not support partition names' and doing a quick search Redhat had the same issue with their installer years ago 

More to work with now and it also explains why both installers failed.. It is by all accounts a gparted issue but I am no closer to a solution.. I am sure there is an update to the installer I need to focus on that may fix this and I should have time this weekend to do just that

Progress is slow but it is happening

It turns out the April 2018 do work after all .. Not sure why I came to believe they did not

To answer your questions RatMan, there are two installers failing and neither of them are written in python (though parts are)

There are two major differences now that I believe is the issue with the Kernel being the only thing different.. The types of errors we are seeing is similar to when people build a kernel and forget to put certain parameters in

This is still grasping.. right now I am building with out V-Box Guest additions installed to see if that mucked things up
