Mindmeld Installation issues

L1 Bithead

Hey guys, having issues with fresh installs of Minemeld. I've had success installing it on a test virtual box however this time I'm deploying in a VMware environment.


This is the message that I get. I've tried removing the packages for clean install and have tried other machines but all end with the same results.


Any ideas?


directory is emptly,

The whole installation seems like went well no errors

Found the issue. I was using the "minemeld" username so the application couldn't use it.

Hi @vdnguy2,


can you provide us with more details? What MineMeld procedure are you using? cloud-init iso? Ubuntu package? What Linux distro/version are you using?

@xhomsI am doing the manual install on Ubuntu server 14.04.
