Something such as themes, sounds, or background settings may not work correctly. The last error message was: Did not receive a reply.

GNOME will still try to restart the Setting Daemon next time you log in". what's the meaning of this error?please help!!!i use intel p3 800 mhz, 128 mb, 20 gb HDD, geforce 4 mx 440, asus cd-rw drive

Solve The Problem

Perhaps try an alternate installation version of 7.04 such as Xubuntu, for something lighter on the memory requirements.

The main trouble I think you are experiencing is lack of memory. 7.04 recommends 256 as minimum for runtime. When you load the "live" cd you are loading a fully functional 7.04 desktop environment into memory, leaving virtually nothing left over for installation.

I would suggest Xubuntu with the Xfce desktop environment as it only requires 128megs.

Otherwise if you want the Gnome desktop you will need to install Ubuntu 6.06 LTS, or better yet, install Xubuntu 6.06. You will find it very responsive and quick!

6.06 is the major supported release of Ubuntu, support is for 3years for desktop versions and 5years for server versions.

Good point merlinus!

install Xubuntu and if you desire the gnome environment

fire up a terminal and type:
Code:
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

This will install the Gnome GUI

alternately type:
Code:
sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

this will give you the KDE GUI

Reboot to set the new configurations and at the login screen change from Xfce to Gnome and you will load into Gnome rather than Xfce, You can also choose to make this the default environment from here as well.
