I've been trying for a few hours now to get the new 12.04 beta 2 up and running in my laptop. I've found a few problems
Most of the problems are related to the graphic card, an unfriendly GMA500 that kept me locked in Maverick... but Precise beta 2 promises to work for my graphic card, so I wanted to try.
1. Though right after boot up the screen appears splitted in two, as soon as you choose a language and "TRY" everything goes smooth.
2.a. The install process begins fast. The copying of files is also fast. But we're now approaching to the error.
2.b. While the files are being copied, a series of dialogs where you enter basic info (keyboard layout, etc.) ask you for the data of the first user. Here comes trouble. I can select a city and a keyboard, but when I try to fill the info related to the user and the machine (user name, machine name, passwd), the dialog takes an infinite time to continue...
... and, in fact, never goes beyond that.
I've tried several times trying all posible situations in the dialog: trying to advance while still copying, after copying, with "ask for passwd to log in" and also without that option.
The result is always the same. My install doesn't finish and I'm forced to be back... to Maverick. Again.
Any ideas would be very appreciated.
Edit. OK, I realized that if this is not a gma500-related issue, maybe this is not the correct forum for me to post. Sorry.
