[Pkg-sugar-devel] sugar install

Ongoing saga.

After trying several options without success:
     downloading missing firmware files which were not found by the 
     downloading version with firmware which failed during download 
(forbidden). The download went overnight so I don't know if anything
triggered the message.
     connecting to internet by router

The last attempt seemed to work although it did not set up wifi. However 
after 4 hours it hung 'updating grub'. The install appears to have 
minimal content on the usb drive and download everything. This is tricky 
with a ISP with 50kbs download speed and subject to interruption. After 
completing the download of 1400 files, it failed. However a restart of 
that step started at the last file and completed.

Mistakenly I selected the graphical interface which doesn't provide any 
useful error messages.

The grub portion of the install has reported problems. I think the 
source is that the laptop is setup already with Ubuntu and Windows 
dual-boot and so there is an existing grub setup.
