    I got the same problem and I could use some help.

  6. Tried to use Easyubuntu on 6.10 (Edgy Eft), but it crashes after asking administrative password.

    Hope someone could send some instructions on how to debug or fix the problem.

  7. currently easyubuntu for edgy version is in alpha state so you need to make sure you are installing the correct version.

  8. I also tried Easyubuntu on 6.10 Edgy Eft, but it even does not ask any password – no reaction

  9. same issue 🙁
