My desktop has folllowing configuration: processor: AMD athelon 3000 RAM: 256 MB Hard disk: 8O GB please let me know if you need more details. Thanks, mxms
I have ubuntu 6.06 on a disk. I am currently attempting to install it on my computer. Everything goes fine until its copying files. It gets to 43% and just below the loading bar it says "copying files (900:37 remaining)" and the damn thing stops, you know how I know it stops...the cd-rom stops spinning and the HD LED goes off and everything else freezes, only the mouse will move. THATS IT! I have no other information, nor do I have any way to get any more info cause the thing freezes.So I did my homework. I took out all the pci cards and everything else i don't need, tried again...same thing. I have left the thing on for 3 days thinking maybe it would just take a while, WRONG!! I even tried another disk...nothing. I know not what to do anymore! Any help will be greatly appreciated! Please...im desperate! I am new to linux. HELP ME!!
On the advice of this edition of linux magazine I trialled Mepis for the first time today. Now let me start out by saying that the computer I tried it out on was always going to struggle. It's a laptop supplied by work, and it hasn't exactly got the spec of the century. It's a celeron 1.5Ghz533Mhz processor with 256Mb RAM. By rights I was daft to even attempt a live CD. But the disk does claim to be a "Desktop on Steroids". Having played with it for a good few hours, nothing convinced me to give this a fully fledged go. I wouldn't even trouble my VMWare with it. For starters it's supposed to be based on a Debian/Ubuntu style core.Except that it clearly wasn't made with as much care because even in comparison with a full Ubuntu liveCD, this lags. The first time I madeit in, the system didn't even make it through the desktop load before freezing on me. I booted the liveCD about eight times all in all,

i'll bet you don't hear this one every day:i've got this old IBM model, acquired from the local university computer salvage a few years ago. i'm going to be using it in a public-display Kiosk, so i wanted to put something lightweight on it because it's not the fastest PC in the house (P3 466Mhz - 640MB RAM)-- but she still chugs along.its former life was in a room w/ 20 or more other PC's as merely a node of the "computer lab" network. this thing is crazy looking under the hood-- and it's gotta weigh 40 lbs if it weighs one. whacked out multiple main-boards setup, "sideways inverted" HDD bracket, "upside-down PCI slots"... unusual from what i'm used to-- even in old-school terms!anyway- so, surprise surprise but the BIOS is all weird on that system. i don't recall if i ever had it booting from CD back in the Win days or not, but i can't seem to make it happen this time around. so, i used another PC to put ubuntu on a hard drive which i then swapped back into this old IBM machine. it boots up okay but doesn't want to lauch the X windows, so all i've got is command line. i don't really want to spend too much more time fooling w/ it (wish i could just get that darn CD-ROM boot happening so i could install Ubuntu from the disk-- i even went as far to put two cd-rom drives in there-- one as slave one as master, thinking that maybe it would kick-in the boot-time recognition-- but she seems to only boot via "Network device", or HDD or floppy-- and i can't find a BIOS setting to change it. blah blah..)

Obviously I'm a newbie.Partly because of a nice writeup on the web about installing SuSE 10.1 I did so. I do like it BUT:Probably because of a Win-only wireless card in my laptop I have never been able to establish a network connection. I have ordered a PCMCIA wireless card which hopefully will solve this problem.When I tried to print a test document from OpenOffice all I got was a series of pages, each with a line of gobbledigook. Looks like a driver problem but HP site has only drivers for Win versions.I've heard so many good words about ubuntu I would like to install it instead of SuSE (I'm currently dual booting with Windows XP.) How can I get rid of SuSE so I can replace it with Ubuntu? I fear just installing it would result in either a three-boot or a cobbled up system that won;t do anything right.Thanks for any suggestions.
I had been using Kubuntu up until a few weeks ago, but I'm not a great KDE fan soI bought a book with 5.10 distro included and off I went. Great!, installed like a dreamran the updates then it tells me about 6.06. OK!, Pity I did'nt know that before I boughtthe book. Anyhow I decide to download the 6.06 DVD iso image. Three hours later off Igo and install it. New graphic install screens and the whole process is really great.Pick the language, pick the time zone etc., etc., partition my disks, install proceeds,install finishes, I wait to be asked where I want to put GRUB, I wait and I wait and thenwe go into re-boot. I am definitely NOT impressed with the fact that Ubuntu now decideswithout asking me, that my MBR is where it's going to install Grub. I use WINDOWS XPas well as SuSE 10.1 and I want to decide where my boot loaders go. I had to go back againand re-install in text mode to get what I wanted. I'll be staying with text installs until they

Hello everybody, I'm a newbie and here's my problem: I installed Ubuntu, so I installed the official ATI drivers but the 3D acceleration wasn't running ok. Then I installed the fglrx following the instructions found in https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI
#head-5ead174a0b3294527486cd4d71ded66b40003f25 My problem is that when the system boots the monitor is turned off. I can change the session with control+alt+F* but F7 is allways whith the monitor turned off.Anyway, I can insert an user (enter) and the password (enter) so the session is correctly initiated. I can also change the resolution and everything works OK (even the 3D acceleration!), but when I close the session or I try to change the user, the monitor is turned off again and the GDM doesn't work ok. I reinstalled the GDM but the problem continues. I red this post http://www.ubuntux.org/help-ubuntu-6-graphical-login-not-working but it didn't resolved my problem.
I would love the repositories to allow me to easily install Compiz on amd64 with ATI Radeon. I've followed dozens of installation guides, reinstalled everything, and finally given up (for now). My one consolation is that the xserver-xgl package by itself improves/enables transparency in KDE.
