Post subject:  Failed to Extract Static Mount

I have just pulled the rip cord on Mythbuntu, as development on it seems to have stopped, and the last released version was barely usable.

I have decided to give LinHES a try again. Much has changed I see, and for the better. I am glad I decided to give it another try. But I am sorry to say my initial installs have not gone well, at all. I keep getting the following error, and the installation just stops:

"Failed to extract static mount from /tmp/mount2.28.2.tar.xz" :shock:

The installation stops there and goes no further. My system is a 1U server of 2006 vintage, with an LSI MegaRAID SAS controller, where I have a RAID 0 disk (72 Gig) set as my boot drive, and a 3 disk RAID 0 array (3 x 2 Gig) for recording and video storage.

Initially, I thought my issues were due to a DNS hostname selection, but later found out that the setup only allows the selection of the first two NIC's in the system, and mine has four. So I shifted my Ethernet cable to ETH0, and solved that issue, but this other one has me stumped. There is nothing about this error in the forums or online anywhere. Could it have something to do with my selection of disk or sizes for the various partitions? I increased the OS to 10G, and doubled the database partition, and increased the Home partition to 50G.

Thanks for any suggestions.

After it fails open an xterm and confirm that /tmp/mount2.28.2.tar.xz exists. Also the ouput of df and tar -xvf /tmp/mount2.28.2.tar.xz -C /tmp/

Stupid question: How do I open an xterm window? All I see is the installation splash screens...

I assume it is some key combination :?: :?

I got this error too while building a test secondary backend in virtualbox.
The file does not exist in /tmp/
ls /tmp/
mv debug.log
mv status.log
systemd-private-{a long alpha-numeric string}-mysqld.service-cikr2J

It doesn't seem to be on the network, it failed to ping my router, so I will have a hard time copy and pasting things out of the installer and into the forum.

Since it's a VM I can just pause it and come back to it for more testing if you wish.
