    Question Installation fails at software selection

    I've got an old Acer TravelMate 2434WLMi, and a week ago I uninstalled Windows XP because it was too slow...

    So I tried to install Lubuntu, but if I try to use desktop iso I can't make it running: it sticks when it loads X session in an infinite loop.

    SO I downloaded the alternate iso, but the installation fails when it has to select and install software (the main part )...

    I tried different versions of Lubuntu, but everyone fails. I managed to install Ubuntu 10.04, but canonical does no longer support it, and I'm using Debian 7, but I don't feel confortable with it, I prefer *buntu..

    Anyone can help me?

    (Sorry for my poor english...)

    Re: Installation fails at software selection

    Please run (using any Buntu version)

    Code:
    sudo lshw -sanitize > lshw.txt
    and post lshw.txt in CODE tags. I'm afraid we have a SIS problem.

    Re: Installation fails at software selection

    Yes, you have SIS graphics. I recommend Bodhi as mentioned in my signature. There are ways to get 13.10 working on a SIS platform but for a beginner I believe Bodhi is the easiest.

    If you get some additional RAM you will have a much faster system.
