I have been trying to install GUI, i.e. gnome and lxde, into Debian 9 stretch in google cloud computing instance. I have even increased the cpu, ram, harddisk size. However, the installation is always stuck at "Setting up dbus (1.10.26-0+deb9u1)"
My last attempt is letting it sit for 6 hours now. It's still stuck there.
What can I do?
Thanks and Regards
Edit1: I found this line. Does this have to do with this error?
Setting up rtkit (0.11-4+b1) ... Created symlink /etc/systemd/system/graphical.target.wants/rtkit-daemon.service → /lib/systemd/system/rtkit-daemon.service. Job for rtkit-daemon.service failed because a timeout was exceeded. See "systemctl status rtkit-daemon.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details. rtkit-daemon.service couldn't start.
Edit2: I shutdown the instance and get thefollowing. Not sure if this may mean anything or not related at all - again because I forced shutdown the system.
