I am trying to get my framework running again, after my previous debian broke down.
However I already have tried multiple debian builds (see my stackexchange post for further information). They all have in common, that the graphic installer failes or get stuck at some points (mostly in “Select and Install Software”) and the log console 4 choose different issues at any try.
I wanted to see if other OS can be installed so I tried the officially supported ones. I will add more details for others when I am able to try them. Maybe this has happend to anyone or somebody got an idea.
A) First up was Kubuntu 22.04, which either didnt show anything after startup besides the desktop or got stuck after I started the graphic install process . And the log console was saying nothing but
get_swap: bad swap ...
Another approach was first “Try Kubuntu” and after start up the KDE Crash Handler said something like
Executeable: drkonqi PID:4518 Signal: Segmentation fault (11) Time:…
Id like to mention, that Ive read segmentation fault before when trying to install desktop environment packages in a Debian Bookworm Alpha non-free Installer (see stackexchange).
B) In Ubuntu 22.04 I got stuck write at the Language settings when straight going for the graphic installation. Eventually the screen here blacked out and said 4 lines like.
... pci 0000:00:07.0: DPC: RP PIO log size 0 is invalid
Running the installation through the Try Ubuntu Desktop I got greeted by
Sorry, Ubunut 22.04 has experienced an internal error. I dont think its necessary to type the error details here, but I made a photo.
The installation moved on from there and greeted me with a non-matching source copy on the CD/DVD, from where neither Retry nor Skip does anything
C) I tried fedora and it got stuck as well, even when running as live disk and trying to install smartmontools on the storage.
D) Debian live worked for a while today, but eventually switches to a black log screen.
But I managed to run smartctl and memtester, see answer below.
