Charles-AndreHi guys, I've tried all the afternoon to install Ubuntu from a live CD on my laptop. It takes half an hour to load, and when I double-click the "Install" icon, after like 10 minutes, it freezes without bringing the installer GUI. I checked CD-ROM integrity and RAM, everything's OK. My laptop has 256MB RAM. What is causing the problem? Thanks.02:51
pochuCharles-Andre: what ubuntu version?02:52
Charles-Andrepochu: Edgy Eft02:53
defendguinCharles-Andre: whats your processor speed?02:53
defendguincd-rom speed02:54
Charles-AndrePentium M02:54
defendguinare you sure it takes half an hour to load?02:55
defendguinthat seems a bit excessive02:55
defendguinmaybe the media is bad02:55
Charles-Andredefendguin: Yes, I can tell because I was watching on the TV a program that takes half an hour, and it was still loading...02:56
defendguinand with 256 MB maybe you should be using xubuntu02:56
Charles-AndreThanks. Can I install from the terminal?02:58
Charles-Andre(I don't want to launch the live CD)02:58
defendguinit takes about 2 min to launch the live CD here02:58
Charles-AndreSort of powering on the computer with the CD-ROM in, and starting a text-based installation... Is it possible?02:59
defendguindo you know for sure that the media is good?02:59
defendguini suppose i haven't tried in forever03:00
Charles-AndreYes, I checked its integrity03:00
defendguini'm sure the text install option must be on there03:02
defendguinespecially on an xubuntu CD because it is meant for people with minimal pcs03:02
Charles-AndreFrom the live CD, when I click the menu, it takes a minute to pop up03:03
defendguintry the CD on a different computer and see how long it takes03:04
Charles-AndreLet's see...03:07
Charles-Andredefendguin: On another laptop with 256MB RAM, it's working fine, the installer GUI shows up after around 30 secs.03:20
defendguindude i think something is wrong with that laptop or that rom drive03:21
Charles-Andredefendguin: ok thanks.03:22
defendguini wonder if you could try and external cdrom drive on that laptop03:22
Charles-Andredefendguin: Is it possible to boot off the network from a CD-ROM located on a samba share?03:25

KismetHi All! To update information on LaptopTesting, should I use the new LaptopTestingTemplate or change the layout of the TestingPage to looks like this page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LaptopTestingTeam/FujitsuAmiloM744003:42
KismetI prefer to change the layout of the page so that people will know that they can use the laptop better with some version than other,  also some tips to configure the laptop can be index and become available for user that has not moved to newest version03:43
