Hi all,

I usually don't install the proprietary video drivers upon Yali install, but testing the installation disc for 64 bits, I tried it just to see how it would go. 

Each time it halts at:
....configuring acpid
and a backtrace popup window appears:
'script error org.Freedesktop.Dbus.Error.no reply'
This doesn't bother me as I like to use nouveau for my nVidia card.  Does anyone eles have this problem?

hi lisa marie,

don't know from the top of my head if available as an option before installation, but sometimes you can enable or disable acpi during install (pressing one of the f buttons, use arrows to select applicable option, press spacebar to mark, and esc and continue the setup routine).

maybe nothing, maybe worth a try?

regards, owiknowi

Hi owiknowi!

Yes, thanks for that tip.  And I thought so too, so I tried No ACPI at the install page where you one can click F5 for kernel options.  I guess I am not patient enough, but it put out terminal text and kept on putting out text, and I waited 20 minutes and it kept putting out text.  I thought to myself, is this what its like to build your own kernel in gentoo?  I just didn't know if it was ever going to finish, so I clicked restart both times.  So, was I too quick?

P.S. I will write it up as a bug report later, as in the beta release of 2011, this did not happen.

Not me, i haven't ever seen this Grin

Try also adding "acpi=off" to the boot options line.

.... I tried it just to see how it would go. 
I always use system Settings > Display and Monitor > Video Driver.

and other penguins? this way you can, maybe, find out whether it's a generic linux kernel "problem" (not yet implemented). there are some pretty neat problems with switchable graphics and the optimus stuff  from nvidia.
progress it's called, i believe.

compiling your own kernel is lots of fun! tried it ones myself on a 'big blue'. left it computing for about 14 hours and it came up with nothing i could use... Roll Eyes

p.s. "acpi=off" is the same thing but done from a kernel options line, as you've probably already guessed.

Thanks for feedback owiknowi and atolboo.

Obviously not a big problem, otherwise lots of other nVidia-user folks would be posting about this, too.  I'm assuming that "Proprietary Hardware Drivers" is just for video, but maybe this is for other hardware, too?

I did try atolboo's suggestion and yes, owiknowi, same thing in how long it takes, but with atolboo's suggestion you are looking at the boot screen and not text.  I gave up again when it seemed to be taking forever.  My patience ran out as I had other things I wanted to do.  No big deal, as, like I said I like to use Nouveau driver and as atolboo said, one can install the nVidia driver after the install.
 
Yes, owiknowi, making a personal kernel is only for those that have the patience to learn how and do it.  I don't.

I've got the same problem when I try to install Pardus 2011.1 x86_64.
I've got graphics card with nVidia GPU and chose proprietary driver.

Today I tried install with "No ACPI" kernel and installation stopped at the same point.

P.S. I will write it up as a bug report later, as in the beta release of 2011, this did not happen.

Lisa, did you fill the bug report?
I installed 2011 release without this error too.
