Ubuntu graphic installer

Installing Ubuntu (the modern way)

Right now I’m installing Ubuntu (gutsy) on some PC. The default install CD from ubuntu forces you to do this in X-window. And it all runs from a live-cd…. It’s slow and not usefull, and looking over my shoulder I see it has crashed in ‘Detecting Filesystems’…. Great.

I also hit an issue where the bottom of the installer program (ubuigity they call it) wasn’t completely visible on the screen, so I couldn’t click the forward buttons. I’m downloading the alternate install CD right now. That at least works quickly and ok.

I really fail to understand why somebody wants to do a install of an OS in X-window.
