I have tried re-installing over 10 times and it seems to freeze when downloading a package or unpacking a package. Please help I need this for my dissertation that's due pretty soon

Hi rude38, please post some more information. What repo's are you using? What package is freezing? Are you following anyone's guide for openstack installation? etc...

this is a copy of the last messages before the installation stopped. I've used the instructions from the http://devstack.org and also http://ibm.com File "/opt/stack/oslo.config/oslo/config/cfg.py", line 1231, in _parse_file raise ConfigFileParseError(pe.filename, str(pe)) oslo.config.cfg.ConfigFileParseError: Failed to parse /etc/nova/nova.conf: at /etc/nova/nova.conf:2, Section must be started before assignment: None dpkg: error processing nova-common (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1 dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of nova-api: nova-api depends on nova-common (= 2012.1.3+stable-20130423-e52e6912-0ubuntu1.1); however: Package nova-common is not configured yet. dpkg: error processing nova-api (--configure): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of nova-scheduler: nova-scheduler depends on nova-common (= 2012.1.3+stable-20130423-e52e6912-0ubuntu1.1); however: Pack

Check this link: https://github.com/mseknibilel/OpenStack-Grizzly-Install-Guide

With ubuntu it should work without any issues.

Thanks Ramkumar Raghavan

hi rude38 .I suppose you are following devstack method for installation. Why don't you go for installation guide documentation. I myself have followed it described in http://docs.openstack.org/grizzly/basic-install/apt/content/

The command i used started with; sudo su apt-get install git git clone git://github.com/openstack-dev/devstack.git cd devstack ./stack.sh just those clis to install openstack. Kindly inform me if there is a more reliable way to get the installation to work. I have been on this for over a week now
