View Full Version : [ubuntu] install hangs at 79%

June 14th, 2010, 05:17 AM
I am a neophyte to linux so please cut me some slack. I'm installing the latest version of ubuntu on my old Dell Latitude C840 Laptop. (386 desktop install from CD). I cant seem to get past 79% completion. It just hangs there. I have to assume I'm not the first person to have this problem. I'm reasonably adept with computers but all of the threads/blogs that seemingly address this problem are lost to me. Can anyone provide a simple... or at least step by step process on how I can fix this? Thank you.

Well prob not the best way of doing this.. but i just went and installed the previous version via CD and then once that installed upgraded to the most recent release. Now on to exploring....
