View Full Version : [ubuntu] New install of 8.0.4

May 31st, 2008, 03:47 PM
I'm new to Ubuntu, and having difficulty with installation on my IBM T30 Laptop with 80Gb HD & 512Mb of RAM.
1. I've downloaded the installation and create a CD.
2. The demo run is fine - no glitch (at least that's
i'm seeing).
3. Was able to connect to my home's wireless router and got
the internet going. Other apps appeared to be working as
4. When i began to install, the following problem
occurred at step 3 of "Install" dialog
- Partman Crashed: partman failed with exit code 10.
Further info may be found in /var/log/syslog.
- I pressed the "Try Again" button, but it keeps going
5. How do i get the 3-D desktop graphics to come up?

Please help me to get over this hurdle. :(

Try getting out of the install and check that log file.
