1890872

hp dx6120mt (mini-tower, pentium 4 dual core, 3gb, winfast clone of nvidia 7600gt)

an error has appeared
--
Failed to create a file system
The ext4 file system creation in partition #5 of SCSI5 (0,0,0) (sdb) failed.

On Lubuntu installs, SDB was the installation media, sda being the hdd. I noted this error on Lubuntu 18.04.5 installs though too (it's mentioned in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubiquity/+bug/1890872 but the bug was reported about what I considered another issue; will this install now lock up which is what I filed that bug about.....)

it's just stopped still.. ctrl+alt+T opened a terminal and I see the same messages I reported in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubiquity/+bug/1890872 so it's likely that issue, be it related to this box (identical box to other report) OR something in code this old cpu don't like...

hp dx6120mt (mini-tower, pentium 4 dual core, 3gb, winfast clone of nvidia 7600gt)
a re-run of yesterday's failed effort.. the re-try worked with lubuntu so hopefully here too

reboot, boot into older install; text plymouth like lubuntu, feels a very slow boot with long period with black screen... but subjective.. it comes good so login.. and no menu?? no panel??
ctrl+alt+T opens terminal which opens without border???

system looks good (disk space, my altered background & touched files are present, command history etc), however no panel, no window borders?? I'll log out & re-login again maybe, try something first

`xfsettingsd --replace &` fixed issue (still took awhile, box seems slow today?).
Now I have icons on the desktop, panel has appeared & system is now more functional (now feels faster too). it reminded me of https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xfce4-settings/+bug/1827459 however ctrl+alt+T didn't work in that, and ctrl+alt+T opened the terminal for me to explore why it was just sitting there.. (journalctl makes it look like 6+ min login)

logout, login (yesterday's install still) and this time it appears quickly & looks normal, responses are all quick & responsive.

reboot, login to fresh system, it logins in quickly, no command history, clean $HOME directory and correct disk size.

SYNOPSIS: As issues I've documented here relate to yesterdays install validation (which also was fixed by logout & login again???) and not the QA-test install I'm testing today, this is a successful test I believe so I'm passing it.
