Main PageTroubleshootingInstal stopped half way

Installation process stopped before completion.


Problem

Nothing happens, installation is stuck between 40% and 60%; if encryption is DISABLED, installation goes fine.

Solution

This can happen if the system has run out of entropy ("randomness") while creating the encrypted partition. Don't interrupt the setup, but simply open a text editor and start typing random text. You can also move the cursor around to generate more entropy.

If you wish to measure how much entropy you have available, you can do this (at the command line);

cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail
