View Full Version : [xubuntu] installing xubuntu

August 4th, 2009, 08:15 PM
After my success with ubuntu on my once almost too bogged down to use pc I thought I would do my sister's 450mhz G4 tower a favor, it's still running 10.3, which keeps getting slower and more outdated. I found a ppc version of xubuntu (7 is the only version I could find for downlaod, if there is newer, please let me know). Popped the CD in, waited a painfully long boot time, and here I am... impartial so far, it isnt much faster than osx and there are a few graphical glitches, I want to instal it first for a true feel.

But, I keep getting this error when I try to install it fully on a secondary 80gb hard drive which for some reason comes up as 82gb on the partioner.

The ext3 file system creation in partition #3 of IDE1 slave (hdb) failed.

What should I do?
