    Default having problems with livedvd

    hello all, ive used bt2 in the past and i just got bt4 and burned to a dvd

    i used it to boot up to my very ghetto laptop thats been thru a lot lol

    it boted just fine so i decided to install it to the hdd i went thru to the country settings and once i went to the partition setting i selected full hdd erase and install as it said it was going to finalize the operations i think either the battery died or it crashed on me. my prev windows is still intact as well so i know it didnt get very far. now when i try to boot up into the live cd i type startx and it go to the black screen and after a minute or two i get this error call to lnusertemp failed (temporary directories full?), check your installation once i click ok it kicks me back to the main screen and sits at root@bt

    not sure what to do as this was working fine before i tried to install, hopefully something i can delete thru windows side that is making it think it was installed when its not. also if i type ubiquity at the screen it does nothing. hoping that would have helped me but to no avail!

    appreciate the help and would love to get this fixed asap

    If you're going to nuke your harddisk to install Back track you could try this:

    Boot into BT4

    fdisk /dev/sda

    Then press 'p' to view your partitions, then 'd' followed by the number of the listed partitions when you pressed 'p'. After this press 'w' to save the changes and exit. Reboot and then boot back into BT4 and try and install again.
    Mathematical reasoning may be regarded rather schematically as the exercise of a combination of two facilities, which we may call intuition and ingenuity.
