I tried to install parrot security on my ACER Aspire ES 15 model ES1-533-P205 this is after Debian 9 installed & was working fine for 2 months & parrotsec works fine in live mode as well. So I checked that the md5 signatures match & the do.
During install I tried 2 approaches:
I chose to auto-configure with the largest space with one root partition & one home partition & using the recommended filesystems xfs & btrfs. that’s when I get the first error: the installer complains that there isn’t a swap space. So I go back & try with other filesystem combiniations until I tried ext4 as a last resort on both those partitions. So then I try:
going back to the partition menu, making a swap partition & installing again & that’s when I get the following error “steps that failed: configuring the package manager”
version: Parrot-security-4.5.1_amd64 (I chose this version because I want to eventually become a white hat hacker even though this will be on my personal laptop)
What method did you use to install Parrot?
Configured to multiboot with other systems?
yes with windows 10
