Comments on: Ubuntu 6.10 – borked installer Tech Tips, Reviews, Tutorials, Occasional Rants Sat, 31 Aug 2013 15:50:35 +0000 hourly 1 By: habibbijan Sun, 29 Oct 2006 02:38:42 +0000 Update: the problem seems to be that my “root” partition was previously formatted as reiserfs. I used SystemRescueCD to reformat the partition to ext3, and then the Ubuntu 6.10 installer worked just fine.

So, either this is a serious bug or the Ubuntu installer has dropped support for reiserfs.

Once I got past this serious problem, Ubuntu “Edgy Eft” is running well.
