    Finally I’ve found almost ideal Linux distro but Anaconda installer limits my installation choice only to the internal disks as all the distros are well recognized there.

    BUT,
    -partitions on USB disks are out of Anaconda recognition, it sees only the entire disk, no matter what partitions contains.

    Hope, one day it might change.

    Anyway, Chapeau bas for Chapeau 24!

    Hi,

    The Anaconda installer sees USB disks just fine.
    For example here is a screenshot of my laptop booted from a live USB disk with an additional 4GB USB disk with multiple partitions connected;

    anaconda_usb_target1

    anaconda_usb_target2

    Hi Vince,

    I meant PARTITIONS on USB disks, not USB disks. I can see them as well.

    Cheers,

    You may have missed my update showing the multiple partitions on the USB disk.

    Turned out that it wasn’t about Anaconda in general but about my USB 1.0 TB Seagate disk where Anaconda is blind but other installers aren’t.

    On my USB 3.0 750 GB Toshiba Anaconda behaves well as any other installer.

    Anyway Vince, thanks again for your great distro!

    Now, Chapeau seems to be the first distro dealing brilliantly with the laptop connection to the HD TV set! Even better than Linux Mint.
    Well, every now and then I meet more and more clever solutions, for instance file manager set up, system update way and anything you touch. Yeah, I keep smiling all the time discovering intelligent design behind everything in this gem!
    And, hold your horses, it’s only beta release!

    🙂
