So, I just installed lubuntu on my friend's old HP 8500 Pentium 3 450Mhz/256MB Ram and I'm having an issue. I selemct Ubuntu from the GRUB boot menu, and it begins the load screen. After this it begins flashing a black screen with the following things on it:
*Checking battery state... [OK]
*Stopping System V runlevel compatibility [OK]
It never gets past this point. I'm pretty savvy logistically, but I don't know programming or hardware lingo very well. I should be able to figure out anything procedurally, but I won't be able to work with obscure reference points or extremely technical language. This is my first time working with Linux.
I'm doing this for a friend before I leave town tomorrow morning, so any quick answers or hypotheses would be super great so I can try to work it out tonight.
Thank you all for your help in advance
