I know I'm running old kit but Ubuntu used to be happy with that. Here's the problem.
AMD 64 single core processor. Onboard graphics. 756MB of RAM.
Used to be fine with Ubuntu 8.04. Updated 'live' ( no cd ) to 10.04 ( via the package manager ). Need to install from cd now and newer 12.10 cd won't be a good boy and load. I get the following error message:
starting load graphics devices [fail]
I have swapped out the data cable, dvd drive, and have now put in a second mobo ( same spec as listed above ).
An old spec that used to work fine now doesn't.
Is this a driver issue? I'm thinking it is as the older live cd's worked and these newer ones don't.
Any help would be much appreciated.
