Can't install

Hi, it's my first time tryng to install bunsenlabs, right after selecting the disk partitioning method I just get to an empty window and it won't proceed with the formatting, if I press alt+ctrl+f4 there's an error getting spammed
Urs/bin/tail: cannot allocate memory

Re: Can't install

How much RAM have you got.
Does the text installer work?

Re: Can't install

I have 4 gigs of Ram. I tried using the text installer too but I get an empty blue screen while I partition with the same error as before. I always have an error getting spammed in the console (pci bus express, something like that) whenever I try to use or install any Linux distro but I always managed to finish the installation and I just stopped the spam by adding pci=nomsi to my grub file so I don't know if it matters in this case.

Re: Can't install

Ok. Not sure what the issue is.

Have you tried changing the boot parameters (to add nomsi) during installation?

Re: Can't install

Which ISO image and download method did you use, and how did you transfer it to USB?

Re: Can't install

What model machine are you installing on, and when was it made?

Re: Can't install

Ok, I managed to install it by adding pci=nomsi to the boot parameters (never had to do that before) but now once I boot I get missing modules (cat /proc/modules: ls /dev) and ALERT! /dev/sdb2 does not exist. Dropping to shell.

Re: Can't install

When you added boot parameter, did you change anything else by mistake - such as root=<whatever>

Re: Can't install

I'm pretty sure I did not change anything else.
Maybe the automatic partitioning messed up something?
I think I'll try to do some manual partitioning.
