    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.

    i think it has something to do with the newer kernel in 7.10. i have no idea what though.

    My computer is very old! Pentium III says it all, but still I can run Ubuntu + Gnome + Desktop widgets just fine. Or I can just run Fluxbox without any eye candy and get out all the power under the hood.
    My problem isn't that, my problem is this bug with the linux kernel 2.6.22 that won't boot in my pc. Sadly, no fix for it yet =/

    Quite tempermental, work for an hour, then stop. Requires you to unplug the card, then plug it back it for it to carry on working.

    LG L1900R LCD monitor - wrong placement

    Using the Ubuntu Feisty live cd.

    Type Of Hardware:
    LCD monitor

    Hardware Maker:
    http://www.lge.com/

    Hardware Model:
    LG L1900R

    Known Issue:
    The image placement is incorrect. Specifically, the left side of the desktop is trimmed and I see a black vertical bar at the right side. In Windows this would be corrected with the proprietary software but LG doesn't seem to have a Linux version of it.

    Here are the monitor specs:

    Note this didn't happen to me with an old ubuntu 5.04 live cd I had lying around. Strange!

    Asus M2A-VM HDMI / AMD Athlon X2 4400+ / 2 gig DDR2

    I am in the process of building an HTPC, and was attempting to use the LinuxMCE, which is based on Kubuntu 7.4. The core of this system is an Asus M2A-VM HDMI motherboard with an AMD Athlon X2 4400+ 64bit CPU and 2 gig DDR2 RAM. All of the Ubuntu variants listed below are referring to AMD 64bit CPU compatible versions.

    The initial attempt to load the LinuxMCE distribution got hung on the point where live CD gets to "loading/booting/something at /etc/rc.local and the system just hangs. I also tried Mythbuntu with the same result and Ubuntu 7.10, straight (no weird MCE stuff); same problem. I also tried loading several other OSs such as Fedora 8, DSL-Linux, and straight up Debian Sarge. Nothing would install from any of those either.

    The shipped BIOS version was 0502, and I flashed the latest BIOS, 1603, and repeated the same sequence of operating systems as above. None of the Ubuntu variants would take, and all of them hung at the same spot: loading /etc/rc.local. I did eventually get Fedora Core 8 installed without a single hiccup.

    I have installed all of these OS (barring the MCEs) at one time and currently run most of them on various machines in my house, including an openMosix based cluster in my basement (recodes mps to flac like and renders vid like crazy). I have never had this much trouble installing an operating system on a piece of hardware EVER. It is doubly sad, because of all these systems, I enjoy using the Gutsy Gibbon machine over all the rest. Run away from this board as if a horde of pirates was at your stern. (It does run Fedora 8 hella fast though, but the frustration is not worth it.)

    1)Type Of Hardware
    2)Hardware Maker
    3)Hardware Model
    4)Known Issue

    1) Video Card
    2) Radeon
    3) Radeon 9600
    4) If you use the restricted ATI driver this works fine until you change the resolution and then (no matter what you do, even return the resolution to what it was) you get lock up / re-boots after a number of minutes use. Disabling the restricted driver allows stable use of this AGP video card.
