I tried installing ubuntu 10.04 amd 10.10 on my friend's desktop, which is about 4-5 yrs old. When I installed 10.04 the screen freezes after about 5 mins or so. So I had to uninstall that. Now when I am trying 10.10 the same thing happened in the live mode. I don't think the graphics of the computer is that old that it can't run ubuntu 10.10, it plays older games like half life 2 etc pretty well. I am running on intel 82945 G graphics driver. The computer crashes after about a minute when extra effects/compiz are enabled. Pleas help..
