View Full Version : XFCE fails to install to HDD
1st March 2012, 05:12 PM
I have tried to install the XFCE spin of F17 on one of my test boxes. The install has failed twice. A web search has indicated no known issue. Am I doing something wrong, or should I be submitting a bug report?

Any idea of the error would be nice.

ext4 filesystem check failure on /dev/mapper/vg-lv_root:
File system errors left uncorrected.
Errors like this usually mean there is a problem with the filesystem that will require user interaction to repair. Before restarting installation, reboot to rescue mode or another system that allows you to repair the filesystem interactively. Restart installation after you have corrected the problems on the filesystem.
This is the error that poped up, copied and pasted since i'm not the system with the issie.

I installed XFCE 17 alpha rc4 from tiny disk live medium to my HDD and it worked fine. I didn't use LVM and put grub 2 only on the root partition, CentOS grub legacy is still in my computers MBR. My computer is a few years old, with AM2+ motherboard and Radeon HD 3200. My encrypted home partition uses XFS as filesystem, and root partition is ext4.

holdolin: well, it's pretty self-explanatory, and it's not a bug. it tells you exactly what the problem is and what to do: there is a consistency error on the root partition of your existing installation, and anaconda does not automatically repair these because that may not be the right thing to do in every case. do what it tells you: boot to a live system or rescue mode to repair the filesystem before you do the installation.
