BunsenLabs Lithium not installing.

I downloaded the distro twice with the same result.

the computer is a LENOVO M91P 16GB Ram  I7 processor

This computer has repeatedly installed Distros with no problems.  It installed BunsenLabs Helium properly.

When attempting to install BunsenLabs Lithium, the install get so locating networks, the screen goes blank and all installation stops.

I was able to use Rufus to install as a LIVE distro on USB and can run from that, but cannot install from that or a Live DVD.

Have not found a work around.  If this is intentional, then I understand, if not, there is a glitch.    thank  you.

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium not installing.

Getting very similar results on my Dell Latitude E6230 which previously had Helium and many other distros successfully installed. I have tried multiple downloads of the Lithium iso, and attempted install via both wired and wireless. Install sticks at the screen "Configure the Network" after i have already chosen my ethernet or entered my wifi info. The Live version works fine.

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium not installing.

The solution to this is to disable IPv6 in the installer's grub menu.

Press TAB at the menu entry an then add “ipv6.disable=1” just before "-- quiet", then the installation goes fine.

Thanks to cog for coming up with this solution.

Good catch as I realized that there are older routers (or even ISP's) out there that do not support IPv6.

Same issue on install for me using a Lenovo Carbon X1 first gen, this solved it.   The router is relatively new, a D-Link  DIR-612.   Mods, let me know if you want any specs/config on the router.

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium not installing.

Hi all. I am having same issues on a Razer Blade 2017 - installation script stalls at 'detecting network hardware' and even after entering ipv6.disable as instructed here, no joy.

For reference, I've been using Lithium from the testing ISO since back in Feb. I messed my permissions this morning and decided to reinstall from latest ISO and I can't get it going at all. The first ISO I used 7 months ago went butter.

Any thoughts on why disabling ipv6 isn't working for me as it does for everyone else?

Thank!

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium not installing.

If you have óther problems than faulty ipv6, it does not helt you to disable it.

Are you installing withy wifi or cable? If wifi, use cable instead.
If on cable, use an usb-nic, known to work under linux, and atach cable to it.

Have yo made an internetsearch for "Linux your_hardware_profile"?
What about bootling live Lithium or Helium?
What about bootling live Debian?

Those answers, can you ask in other thread than bugreport.

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium not installing.

I don't understand. I replied to a thread regarding install script not working, and I've mentioned what I've tried to get it to work. If install script isn't working due to ipv6, what could it be? How do I offer you info about what it might be?

I'm on a laptop with not corded option. It's either wifi or something other solution besides corded.

LiveISO works fine, networking is fine on Live. And as mentioned, I've used Lithium from a previous ISO for the past 7 or 8 months, no problem. Same install technique. Now I'm trying to install from most recent ISO and it won't detect my networking hardward during install script - however it works fine in LiveISO.

Is this not a bug in the script?

It is not a bug in Bunsenlabs. A bug in Debian, is not much use reporting here. One wrong does not make another wrong right.
But, I am not a moderator, I just advised you.

I'm on a laptop with not corded option. It's either wifi or something other solution besides corded.

As I pointed out, you can use usb-nic, with jack for ethernetcable. It is a workaround I have been forced to use sometimes.

LiveISO works fine,

If the Debian installer works on a Debian iso, but not on Bunsenlabs iso, then it is a Bunsenlabs bug. Else, it is either a Debian bug or something else.

Have you verified that Debian 10 instalation works, but not Lithium? If so, then I agree.
Have you done a hw-probe, if not, I recommend that.
Boot parameter to disable ipv6, have you still not done.

Have you tried workoarond, using a usb-nic, known to work under linux?
Another workaround is to install Helium and upgrade to Lithium

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium not installing.

Ok, just to state what I had already done .........
I have successfully used, installed BL HELIUM on pc and thumb drives.
BUT I have been unsuccessful installing BL LITHIUM on anything.
I only know how well it runs because it runs live from DVD or Thumb drive.
I think I prefer BL Lithium over BL Helium, but the installation problem is problematic.

I will try to answer all your questions.......

""As was pointed out earlier:
When installing, let the installer format the partition you're installing to. Did you?
A quick search seems to confirm that that must be the issue.""
---- I attempted a search on 01/18/2021.  This is the same issue the early release Lithium had.  At that time, someone thought it might be an issue with the network card chip in the computer.  Now the actual Lithium release is out, and the issue remains.

---- I have added the "ipv6.disable=1" to the install boot.  installation still failed at the network config. get a white window and itis blank.  I am reasonably certain I did insert this correctly then hit Enter.  someone said to hit Ctrl X.  I don't know if that makes a difference but I will try that.
As I have installed BL Helium successfully, this problem seems confusing as why LITHIUM has a problem.

Just to double check this, as It has been stated now many times.  You did use the partitioner from the bunsenlabs image?  Sorry to ask, but the above is unclear.
Partitioning from other sources (rufus etc . . ) is not advised.

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium not installing.

@Runion2, if you can install Debian 10 but not BL Lithium, then it is an bug in BL.

Can you install Debian 10? If no, it is a bug in Debian. Probably it is problem with drivers.

Not all who experince the installation hungs when detecting network, fix it with disabling ip6.
Ctrl+X or F10, is used after editing grub, to trigger boot wit changed parameters to the kernel.
If you hit Enter, you only insert a new line. So, maybe you have not disabled ipv6?...

Can you confirm that Debian 10 installation works, but not Lithium, even with ipv6 disabled?
Can you make an hw-probe?

Sorry, the above is true when editing grub, changing boot-parameters for harddisk boot. Not when editing bootparameters for booting the BL iso.

You can verify that you realey changed bootparameters.
Activate tty2 (press Ctrl+Alt+F2), press Enter.
Type command "cat /proc/cmdline".

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium not installing.

Alright  finally   S O L V E D

typing  ipv6.disable=1  then  ctrl and F10  does nothing.
you have to  type ipv6.disable=1  then press Ctrl and Alt and F2,   thankyou to who mentioned this.
Then we were on our way.

I am installed but there were problems.

When the WELCOME script came up I was getting errors from the BunsenLabs server

A great deal of the downloads gave errors or broken data.

It actually locked up the Op system when attempting to config pepperflash

This effectively locked me out of the synaptic installer for software.

I ended up reinstalling the BL Lithium operating system and NOT accept the script
for upgrading so I could have control of the oprating system.

It is also having a problem with accessing the mirror. (noise on the line??)

There seem to be too many problems, I really like Helium and I finally have it at a point that
it runs very well.
LITHIUM is becoming a struggle beyond belief.  I'm going to work with it for awhile but
it is becoming a struggle that may not be worth all the effort.

but i am done, this is solved.  the other problems may be at the BL servers.

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR TIME AND PATIENCE AND HELP.

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium not installing.

In forum  News & Announcements, is post: PSA: bunsen-keyring package refreshes, informing that Lifetime of BL apt-key, ended 2021-01-18. The Lithium isos, contains an apt-key that is outdated.

You have to import new apt-key with command run as root:

# wget https://ddl.bunsenlabs.org/ddl/BunsenLabs-RELEASE.asc -O- | apt-key add -

or download  latest deb-package with bunsenlab key ring and install it with "dpkg -i bunsen-keyring_2020.10.10*"

When one has edited grub menu and want to boot, you shall press Ctrl X or F10, to continue boot.

Edit: Sorry, forgot again. What keys is used to trigger boot can vary. Some Menus, use Ctrl X or F10. In post #15, above did I correct myself, that Lithium iso dont use those keys.

you have to  type ipv6.disable=1  then press Ctrl and Alt and F2,   thankyou to who mentioned this.

Ctrl + Alt + F2, has no effect when in grub menu. But, when you have booted DVD or USB-stick, you can press Ctrl + Alt + F2, to get to an tty, outside the Debian installer or the Live session.

There seem to be too many problems,

There will be less problems, if you read what people advice you to do and sometimes check in on News & Announcements
