View Full Version : [ubuntu] 8.04 on DELL T7400

May 6th, 2008, 08:07 PM
I am trying to install 8.04 on my T7400. The install appears to go fine, but when directect to restart, it hangs on the Ubuntu Splash screen. I power off and on and all seems to be okay. Then I run the updates and install the restricted non-free (i.e. Flash, JRE, etc) and restart, again hangs.

Power off and back on, now no sound.

This is a clean install on a new drive WD Raptor WD 1600ADFS.

Any ideas?

Hi everybody,
i have the same problems on identical configuration.
Probably the kernel is not able to manage the power off of the mother board, could anybody help me?
Moreover , i have X-fi Xtreme PCI audio card, i tried to install the new driver, but i discovered that they doesn't work on 8.04. So i upgraded to 8.10 and now my X server is died....
Poor man
