View Full Version : [xubuntu] Installation proble

July 22nd, 2008, 10:59 PM
I am trying to install Xubuntu ver. 8.04on my desktop. When I start the install it gets to step 1 and says there are some questions I need to answer. I hit the next button, I hear my CD drive start to spin and does not stop. The whole thing locks up and goes no further.


Intel Celeron 666MHZ
256MB Ram

You cannot boot a Live CD with that RAM, unless you make a 500 MB /swap partition ahead of time. The Alternate is a text based installer that will do fine with your memory. Download from here:
