Parsix 8r0: Unknown GFXBOOT, Failed to detect Live Media

Postby RastaMon » Mon Sep 14, 2015 8:43 am

Hi

I am trying to install Parsix 8r0 (32 bit) via USB made by rufus on Windows 7.
The laptop is a Dell Precision M60 with 2 GB ram and 60 GB disk.

It starts with
Unknown keyword in configuration file: GFXBOOT
Unknown keyword in configuration file: GFXBOOT-BACKGROUND
Please see Parsix_8r0_install_fails_20150914_1.jpg

It tries to boot and later it says:
Failed to detect Live Media.
modeprobe: module ehci-orion not found in modules.dep
... F1 Help ...
F1 works but other F-keys like F2, F3 etc gives no response at all.
...
/bin/sh/: can't access tty; job control turned off
(initramfs)

Please see Parsix_8r0_install_fails_20150914_2.jpg

When attaching files the forum says:
Temporary folder could not be found. Please check your PHP installation.

I had same issue with Parsix 7.5.

Thank you in advance

I also had a basic problem. I checked the MD5 of the ISO, created the USB with ImageWriter (also tried with DD command). Tried to boot from the USB stick but no boot files detectable and the system defaults to my hdd boot.
I test many systems and have no problem with Debian8, Mint LMDE, Mint 17, Peppermint, LinuxLite etc.
Parsix looks interesting and I would like to be able to check it out.
My system is NOT UEFI but an older desktop with Dual Core, 4Gb Ram and NVidia GT7950GT. Any help would be appreciated

Guys,

You need to use parsix-iso2usb command to create a USB image from within Parsix or Parsix in Live mode:

Code: Select all
parsix-iso2usb -D /dev/sdX -P 10 -n --iso /path/to/parsix.iso


All info will be deleted on the USB key

Thanks Alan, but I do not have Parsix and cannot boot into Parsix Live Mode. It becomes a cirular problem "in order to install Parsix you must have Parsix". In my experience all other distros can be created with ImageWriter or UnetBootin or DD. Parsix appears to be the dd man out.

Thank you for the reply, Alan.

In order to install parsix via usb, you have to have a running parsix.
This reminds me of the paradox "Which came first, chicken or the egg?"
;)

I installed a vmware vm and tried it and I get error ;)

root@parsix8:/home/samo# parsix-iso2usb -D /dev/sdb1 -P 10 -n --iso parsix_8.0r0-i386.iso
E: No GRUB2 installation found.

I wonder if parsix could be downloaded as USB image file (to copy with dd).

Thank you in advance

Sorry guys, I'll soon work on a USB image.

@RastaMon: Do an update. That issue is resolved in 8.0r0a. Don't need a new ISO, just do an apt-get update && apt-get install parsix-iso2usb
