Fog install freezing

  • I am installing fog 1.5.2 on Debian 9.4 on a vmware server. I had successfully installed it once but realized i should have made certain settings different on the installation and now that i blew away the vm and started again with a fresh install it freezes on “Installing Package: Build-Essential” it just sits forever. I had some of the DNS, DHCP settings wrong which i fixed this time. the only thing i did different than the last time is i installed the VMware tools and the net-tools package because VMware tools would not install with out ifconfig present. i did restart after installing VMware tools.

  • @walkerit When you run the fog installer, it’ll list out all the packages it will try to install - then it goes about installing each one of those. You can copy/paste that entire list and install them manually with apt-get -y install package1 package2 package3 ...

  • @wayne-workman Im not 100% sure what you mean by that

  • @walkerit Right now, there is nothing wrong with the installation process on Debian 9 (see my signature). Try to pre-install the list of packages that the fog installer lists when it runs.
