I get Errno=-32 when trying to instal ubuntu 12 on a macbook pro. Is there some one that can tell me what errno=-32 means?

I guess it is a Reported Bug here – atenz Aug 20 '12 at 5:42

Errno 32 is: EPIPE, Broken pipe. So I suspect a process that is reading or writing on the pipe died unexpectedly and caused this error message. How it relates to the install is hard to tell without further details.
