If all else fails try "INSTALL_MEDIA_DEV=/dev/whatever" as an install
Any suggestion on where to set this?
On startup, the USB installer goes right to language selection - no
splash screen or other opportunity to adjust the invocation.
I tried adding it to syslinux.cfg (append
INSTALL_MEDIA_DEV=/dev/sdc1) but that doesn't seem to work. Exiting
to shell reports that the installer thinks INSTALL_MEDIA_DEV=/dev/ -
AND now its mounted /dev/sda1 as /dev/hd-media - it doesn't see the
stick at all
ooops - I had a typo in syslinux.cfg - it actually did say /dev/ - so
the boot picked up the environment variable
just fixed this and retried
now, after starting the installer, and going through language selection,
it still can't find the .iso, but
- exiting to shell reports that INSTALL_MEDIA_DEV=/dev/sdc1, but
- it hasn't mounted /dev/sdc1, not even as /hd-media - instead it's
mounted /dev/sda1 as /hd-media, and even though there's a copy of
mini.iso in there, it doesn't find it
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In<fnord> practice, there is. .... Yogi Berra
