View Full Version : [ubuntu] Toshiba Satellite S300CDT

Has anyone successfully installed on this model?

It has a P166 Mhz MMX processor with 2Gb of HDD

When attempting a low-spec video loads it gets as far as [14.749072] and freezes.

The preceding message is "[14.749023] Kernel panic - not syncing: Out of memory and no killable processes..."

The version on the CD is Ubuntu 8.

As a newbie, I always understood that one of the great redeeming features of Linux is that it could make old machines usable again and avoid the dustbin - and it would be really great to get this one running again!

Any help or pointers would be very much appreciated.

your configuration is definitely too low for ubuntu 8. the 2gb memory i believe is not enough. you must rather try xubuntu. It takes 1.5 GB.
