Mandrake 10.1 Error: basesystem package not selected
Posted on 2004-11-22
Partial Linux Noob. This is probably very distro specific, so sorry to ask in a general forum.
Installing Mandrake 10.1 from CD on a Shuttle SS51G.
Mandrake apparently is the only distro that fully supports shuttle, if any others that are easy I'll listen, it's for Freevo/MythTV.
Anyway. I download the ISOs from Mandrake. Check the MD5s and they're fine. Install and it starts to go good. Setup my partitions, I take the defaults actually, pick my packages. Click the next button and I get An error has occured. basesystem package not selected.
I click ok and I go back the partition screen. Do that again and then pick all packages, same error. I pick no packages same error.
I can not get past it. I try different partitions, and other things.
I installed Debian Woody and Knoppix on it just fine, besides for video/sound/network with Debian.
I read online that this is a Mandrake thing but no fixes, and most are with old Distros. Mandrake really has no support. Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance.
