    Cant get it to drive the second output as anything other than a duplicate monitor. When I go to screen and graphics preferences there are two screen ones and the selection for the secondary screen is greyed out. When I do xrandr -q I get this

    julianb@julianb-desktop-main:~$ xrandr -q
    Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1280 x 1024, maximum 1600 x 1200
    default connected 1280x1024+0+0 0mm x 0mm

    Re: Desktop Hardware Incompatibility List.

    I'm having problems trying to run v7.10 on a couple of configurations:

    1. IBM Thinkpad R30 laptop

    getting a string of errors on boot like [618.124000] Buffer I/O error on device fd0, logical block 0 then presented with BusyBox v1.1.3 shell

    2. ACPI x86 based PC with
    RADION XPRESS 200 Series graphics

    Get the loading screen but eventually screen just goes blank and seems to disconnect

    Could someone please point me in the right direction to learn how to get linux installed on these (old) machines?

    Many thanks

    ACPI: DMI BIOS year==0, assuming ACPI-capable machine

    Hi everyone!

    I've been using Ubuntu for some time now and have been really happy with it! But I can't install Gutsy. Every variant of the 7.10 Ubuntu I can't install it.

    ACPI: DMI BIOS year==0, assuming ACPI-capable machine

    This is the error displayed, and after that the Live CD won't do anything. It looks like it's loading but after some time, it starts to display some errors. I have tried with:
    Ubuntu 7.10
    Xubuntu 7.10
    Fluxbuntu 7.10
    gOS (based on Ubuntu 7.10)

    I have once attempted to do a roundabout of this by upgrading to 7.10 with the Internet updates, but the result is the same. The installer was successful, but I wouldn't start Ubuntu.
    However, If in the GRUB boot options I'd choose the earlier version of Ubuntu (Feisty) then it would start normally with no problems.

    On Edgy, and Feisty I have never encountered any problems of this sort. Can anyone help me with this?

    I have already disabled ACPI in the BIOS but it made no difference.

    You know you have a Pentium III CPU right? How old is your computer? I know I'm not that techy with Ubuntu yet, but I know even the most ressource efficient OS's need some power under the hood...
    The truth about 9/11 is being hidden from us.

    Code:
    sudo fix problem

    Re: Desktop Hardware Incompatibility List.

    -Lenovo Thinkpad T60 running 7.10 with all current updates as of this post.
    (Intel Core 2 Duo 2GHz, 2GB RAM, ATI X1400 graphics, etc)
    - Installed ATI's restricted driver for Compiz-Fusion (this could be the issue)

    Issue #1
    Will not come out of Standby. Just get a black screen with a curser blinking

    Issue #2
    Will not come out of Hibernate. Same thing.

    Issue #3
    Cannot dim/brighten the screen with the hardware keyboard controls. It doesn't work when its plugged in OR when its unplugged. This even worked in Feisty.

    Issue #4
    Cannot use the middle mouse button to scroll through documents (such as Firefox)
    This is resolved by adding the following two lines to xorg.conf under "Section InputDevice":
    Option "EmulateWheel" "true"
    Option "EmulateWheelButton" "2"

    EDIT: I reverted back to the non-ati drivers and it fixed issue #1 and #2 but not #3.

    Re: Desktop Hardware Incompatibility List.

    Toshiba Tecra A4
    Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor 2.13GHz
    800.000 MHz
    2MB cache
    1.5GB RAM
    80 GB HDD
    Matchita DVD-RAM

    Initially installed Feisty.
    Most things worked, accept graphics accelerator, modem, memory card reader. Machine stated real quick and response times were good.
    Cannot switch between users, hibernate or suspend.

    Now running Gutsy.
    Only the card reader does not work - have not tried to fix that yet ...
    Start-up is REALLY really slow, but once it is going all seems OK.
    Cannot hibernate or suspend.
