Hi,

Using the latest installer image (l6dfrnjhhjf3axjndk290qsgxj0bzpgm-image.iso) I can't install the system because everytime I select a partition scheme, the installer takes me back to the language selection step.

It seems at least two other people have experienced the same issue (see https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/help-guix/2020-06/msg00136.html).

I didn't take note of the exact installation steps nor the machine specs, but I can provide that information later if you consider it necessary.

Best,

The latest installer offers a core-dump upload mechanism that should
help diagnosing this issue. Any chance you could try again with
https://ci.guix.gnu.org/build/1689729/details, or later :)?

Thanks,

Mathieu

I tried again with w0wi4jvanaddk1zcvwzhlnn7fkfwab82-image.iso in the same machine and the issue is gone. I could install the system almost flawlesly. So no oportunity to try out the new mechanism :)

I'll report my installation experience later to help-guix.

I'm closing this issue now.

Thanks a lot,

Hello Simon,

Interesting, thanks for the report.

It looks like you experimented a crash (segfault or so), and the
backtrace is not really helpful here sadly.

What would be interesting is to share the core dump, either by copying
the /tmp/installer-core-dump file after the crash, or by using the dump
upload mechanism and reporting the crash id.

Thanks for your help,

Mathieu

Please visit the core dump online at [1] for a while.

I noticed this behaviour happens when placing a hyphon inbetween two
words in the hostname.  The installer doesn't reset when there is no
hyphen.  I will try to complete the installation to confirm that it
usually works without the hyphen.  I'm still at
axygxkgkgcgbk2gjd6q521h85shp7hwf-image.iso.

That claim doesn't seem right either.  Only after rebooting the machine
and setting `guix' as hostname doesn't reset the installer.

Will report back.

The installer went through with setting the hostname to guix.
