Hey, is anyone else having trouble installing the 17.x series of Manjaro?
I've tried all the DE's, both 17.0 and 17.0.1 versions, and while all previous versions (16.x and before) have always installed flawlessly, the 17.x series usually stops at 29% during the install process.
What you mean by stall? how long did you wait?
Sometimes (in 17.0 at least) the progress bar in the installer will stop at somewhere before 30%. But if you wait long enough (obviously depends on the hardware) it will jump to the end part (around 75% or more).
So basically, visually it could look like it has stalled, but it is just the progress bar that stops show the correct percentage.
I just installed Manjaro-KDE-17.0.1, the other day, (with a USB2.0 at that), and yes, it sat at 29%, for a few minutes, but it didn't "stall", it continued on and all was OK, with no troubles at all.
So, maybe your hardware is a bit slower?, or maybe your patience is a bit lacking?,
but it doesn't "stall".
