    Failed download base system Lubuntu from Mininimal Install in 32 bit non PAE laptop

    Hi,

    I am trying to install lubuntu in a ten year amilo laptop using ubuntu minimal iso from a cd. The only possibility is to install Precise Pangolin (12.04) 32 bit non PAE, as the computer doesn't support PAE. (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lu...MinimalInstall)

    Everything goes ok until I have to choose the archive mirror for downloading the base system from. I select my own country, Spain, and doesn't download anything at all, the computer freezes... Same with other servers.

    Any idea of how can i fix this issue?

    Thanks,

    jorge

    Are you using wired internet access?

    LAN is fine, but as you probably read in the link in your original post the connection has to be wired.

    I have tried with wired networking but I am sure that the LAN network works fine as I introduce other mirror manually and it gets an error... when i select my own country it just freezes

    I am not sure I understand what you are writing. Do you say that other mirrors work?

    Hope this helps. I am a farmer, ubuntu user trying to fix an old computer.

    Thanks

    I already tried it... many mirrors
    Even if i point to other alternative mirrors (ie.universities), still "violet" screnen, like ubuntu.uc3m.es
