Have tried to install Ubuntu 8.10 desktop 386 with a number
of different c/d's First a rc then two final desktops
including trying the live versions also an alternate
install. They all have a common problem, booting to the
welcome/login then crashing to a black or plain light brown
The install appears to slow down as it progresses, this is
particularly true of the alternate, the last few files take
a long time to config/install.
I thought that it may be a memory problem and increased the
ram to 700+ however that made no difference at all. Someone
suggested that my psu may be faulty but I have installed
puppy linux in two or three times without a problem. Knoppix
live works just fine
Any help would be appreciated.
