View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 8 SPARC edition problem jumbled text at install

April 8th, 2009, 10:36 PM
hello guys i bought a SPARC neutra system a couple of months ago and after failing to install solaris onto it (and leaving it as a door stop for a couple of months) decided to stick ubuntu onto it

for starters i dont own a sun keyboard i have a cheap pcline usb keyboard (it works but for sum reason it keeps stickying the keys:S i havent a clue why

also i have a cheap tesco technicka optical mouse (dont no if that works as install is keyboard only)

i boot from cdrom (after many trys with the annoying sticky like keys) and i get this after it telling me quickly to back up my hard drive (which has a half installed osx server on it) the reason why solaris didnt work first is because the hard drive was dead.



thanks in advance guys
