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 blank screen
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.
