View Full Version : [xubuntu] Partitioner on old PC

July 21st, 2009, 04:03 PM
This is on Cyrix II PC (I think), and I can get to the partitioner on a Xubuntu alternate CD, but where it would normally offer the guided and manual options, it just displays "??? ???" and there is nothing for me to do. I have tried several switches from the boot menu of the installer. Any ideas?

I can't get the LiveCD to boot- it only has 64 megs of RAM..... I was hoping to try to do a minimal install if the alternate wouldn't work.

64mb of ram is much too low for anything in the 'buntu family (256mb is recommended for Xubuntu); that's probably why the installer keeps crashing. I recommend giving DSL a try: www.damnsmalllinux.org
