I have been failing at the system-update after installation due to wifi issue.  Finally I made it by installing cinnamon this time. So I installed connman right away. Seems my PC has been a connection problem with LAN for a while,

By the way, this is very interesting to play with so far.  I could install IME of Fcitx plus Mozc to enable to type the local charactors via keyboard from the start so this is the big benefit for those who need to install double byte characters like me assuming that is the default for Chimaera .... I hope.

Thanks, Michaels or alphalpha,

I checked the video you provided and changed the way for the installation.
I specified the boot partition of 200MB under legacy/extlinux instead of legacy/grub then everything was smooth. I had been installing without boot partition under legacy/grub. No success without boot partition under legacy/exlinux. That's why I could not make it.

After re-boot, the default keyboard was german instead of what I selected in installation  so I needed press z for "y".
After login, the keyboard setting was OK under the proper localization of the system. Lots of stuff are pre-installed.
Keep up your good work!

Thanks for your reply. Actually no error message was generated. Repeating to get the same result without any message.
I think I did as you instructed but I might be wrong since your installer is different.

I just confirmed your update is only Oct. issue. When I had checked, I saw two versions with Sept issue there.

I prefer to have your video or the written procedure with picture if you have a time. Then you would have the more customers for your distro hopefully.  Cheers!

Hi Michaels,

Thanks for your continuous efforts to release the update every month.

I noticed the Oct. issue was very strange with very tiny size of 13.5MB.

Could you confirm if it is the right one? And kindly add how to install via your Michaels installer as well for me or for us. I have been downloading almost for all update but I have never been succeeding to finish the installation but failing after typing "/dev/sda".

Another thanks!

Hi Hevydevy,

I did install it instead of login.  No idea about login name and password so I did so. The installer is like Star so it is debian installer.
It is based on lxde with openbox so a bit different configuration.

Is it helfule?!
