Hi, I should start by saying that I'm very new to tech/computers in general, even newer to Linux (but already hooked
and yet again even newer to CentOS.
Been using Ubuntu based distros with varying degrees of sucess on various machines for several months, but have never come across this particular problem before.
I've googled and tried searching the forum here with different terms but the only reference I can find to the issue I'm experiencing is this Red Hat Bugzilla entry: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=761087
To be honest, none of the info on this page means much to me in my newbie naivety!
What happens is: the install seems to go perfectly - gets to the end, tells me to reboot to complete installation. When I do so, I just end up back at the installer desktop, I thought maybe I could do yum update from the terminal there to sort it out somehow, but there seems to be no way to run a root command from the install desktop terminal - I just keep getting told off and reported! I'm officially baffled!
Hardware wise, i'm on an Asus A53e, which is dual-booting Xubuntu & Windows. But I kind of doubt it's a hardware issue, as I have the same problem trying to install in VirtualBox and dual-booting on my Mac. Also I have the same issue trying to install Fedora, which I assume is because both distros use the same installer? Anaconda? But as I said, never had this problem with any Ubuntu based distros - or Debian or OpenSuse for that matter.
Apologies if this is a fairly common, easily rectified bug,(it kind of seems as though it must be - I feel like somewhere along the line I'm probably just doing, or failing to do something really stupid!) but as I said, I have tried for sometime to find a solution, and am really keen to try running a Red Hat related distro as my ultimate (and at this point clearly very distant!) goal is to get Red Hat certified. As you can probably gather - i've got rather a long way to go! Lol!
And advice/light shedding would be greatly appreciated.
