Installing Lubuntu generates a black screen with mouse pointer
I am trying to install Lubuntu 12.10 on a Compaq Presario 5BW154 (P3 / 384MB RAM) and although the live CD seems to work, Ubiquity seems to crash and I just can't get Lubuntu to install.
The following error is displayed before Ubiquity launches: I/O space for GPIO uninitialized (judging from the search results, that means Ubiquity has crashed) after which I'm treated to a black screen with a mouse pointer. I can switch terminal and execute commands, though.
I have tried disabling the framebuffer and a few other things related to the videocard but this has had no impact whatsoever.
Is there another way to install Lubuntu or a way to troubleshoot Ubiquity?
