[OPEN] Installation failed ( External command finished with errors).

Post by hemin »

Hello everyone,
As a newbie, I'm trying to install Arcolinux GNOME on my legacy laptop, but I can't succeed. At the end, the Calamaris informs me that the installation was not successful. Although I formatted my hard disk with both GPT and MBR, I could not succeed. I choose hardened kernel in Arcolinux. I partition the hard disk as "boot", "swap", "root" and "home" and encrypt each one with the LUKS. I am trying to install Arcolinuxl iso via flash memory. I get the following error at the end of the installation:

Please let me know if you need any additional information.
Thank you for your help. Good day.

No space left means no space left.

If it is a virtual machine make it bigger.

Do not make your life so difficult.

One partition for all is easier.

Here is our knowledge.

Check what can be done with Calamares.

All special configurations you do them with Arch Linux or other means.

Thank you for the quick answer. No, it is not a virtual machine and I have enough space on my hard disk. I will try to install it without partitioning it. I suspect the problem may be related to the Calamaris installer. Thank you.

That is what I suspect as well.

Encrypting is possible.

see Calamares article.
