When it hangs

by Oz_Media In reply to software installation

Check the running processes (Task manager) and see if some or one is not responding. If nothing is in an error state, just start shutting down running processes until it works. I find things like antivirus, mail notify etc will cause installs to hang as they are using up resources or system interrupts.

This is the main reason 99% of installers say to make sure there are no other processes running at the time.

What are you using?

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to software installation

I take it from you're question that it is a Linux/Unix problem as apposed to a Windows Problem that you are experiencing.

You could alway try copying the raw program from the CD to a place on the HDD and then try installing it from the HDD this will at the very least rule out a CD error in the computer if it still doesn't work.

Failing that if you would like to contact me via the Peer Listings and give me all the information about exactly what you are experiencing I'll do my best to help you out of you're current problem.
