Description

Hello,

When I installed Calculate I cannot install grub on a partition.
The installer gives only the choice of a disk.
And when I try the install from prompt with --mbr=/dev/sdc2 I see a message that disk /dev/sdc2 cannot be found.

Can you try to install Calculate on ext4 partition? May be the case in this bug - "libreiserfs interface version mismatch".

At the moment installer can install grub only in mbr or install nothing (with --mbr=off). Feature request: need ability to install the grub at the arbitrary partition.
