Re: Error: GRUB Installation failed

Mhh that's strange. Maybe some corrupted files? Did you check the md5 of the BackBox iso? You can try redownloading if digests don't match.
As I said, you can install it manually. Install BackBox again but don't check the option to...

I don't know how this cairodock works, but for sure it is messing something. You should use the default backbox xfce Desktop Environment in the login manager screen in order to preserve the BackBox menu.

Backbox 4 => release date?

Sun, 07/27/2014 - 13:04
Hi everyone,
I'm new here and I'm sorry, if this topic is in the wrong category.

On http://www.backbox.org/blog you say, that Backbox 4 "will be released soon" and that was on 05/21/2014.
What does "soon" mean? 
Is there a release date?
