View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing Ubuntu on Everex Stepnote SA2053T - need help

June 10th, 2010, 05:02 AM
I am a newbie, trying to install Ubuntu on my Everex laptop.
So far I have followed these instructions http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=704260 and thus have been able to actually install it. However after installing updates upon restarting the system it does not boot to Ubuntu showing the following message:

mmc0: Unknown controller version (16). You may experience problems.I did try to backlist those 3 files (8139too, mmc_core and sdhci) before downloading updates.

By the way that article was written for Ubuntu 8.04, so I figured that with Ubuntu 10.04 (the one I am trying to install) the blacklist file has changed to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf.

What am I doing wrong?

I know it's a trouble trying to install Ubuntu on this laptop - I have done the research and read some reviews and stuff, but I really like the laptop & Ubuntu and I don't care if the card reader or/and network port won't work.
Right now I can't get back to Ubuntu after upgrades are downloaded and installed.

Any help will be much appreciated..
