Hit "Transaction Lock" Error on Install? Try This ...

When installing, select text mode type of install at start of process. That is, hit F3 and select “Text”.

Worked for me, after failure with 32, 64 bit DVD, Live CD, Net Install. Normal install all the way through.

I’ll definitely try this one - every failure I’ve had installing 12.1 looks
like it could be involved with video based on where things go hay-wire.

I did try TEXT mode
But no go for me.
Used kde live cd and then the DVD I had to update to full install.

Ditto here. This is a strange case - I’ve had complete success and abject
failures on the same machine with the same starting point on the same
partitions.

I HATE it when the (apparently) same process yields different results!
