    Angry abnormal exit errors on 9.04 install

    Hi all,

    I'm fairly new to Linux, but I decided to give Jaunty Jackalope a go.
    I succeeded at installing the OS from a boot cd, then i'm told to reboot the machine and on reboot I get a bunch of abnormal exit errors:

    export /dev/block/1:11
    /devicces/virtual/block/ram2
    export /dev/block/1:2
    /devices/virtual/block/ram5
    export /dev/block/1:5
    /devices/virtual/block/ram8
    export /dev/block/1:8
    /devices/virtual/input/mice
    /devices/virtual/input/input3/mouse0

    I'm trying to install on a compaq armada m700 P3 650 MHz with 448MB ram and a 80gig EIDE harddrive.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Ok, so I rebooted in repair mode (or something) and after a few screens of text (too fast to read), it stopped on

    path_id /devices/platform/i8042/serio4/input/input6/event6 abnormal exit

    Sorry to be such a noob about this.
    I really want to give ubuntu a try as an alternative to windows, but I just can't seem to get it installed...
    sigh...

    Also the "try ubuntu without making any changes to your system" freezes on loading...

    Next I tried installing with everything off:
    acpi
    apci
    cpia
    and whatelse not
    Also in safe graphics mode (or whatever it was called).
    Still to no avail...
    This time I got:
    udevd-event [2303]: '/sbin/modprobe -b pci:v0000125Dd00001978sv0000E11sd0000B112bc04sc01i 00' abnormal exit

    any thoughts...

    anyone?

    Ubuntu 8.10 worked good, but after updating to 9.04, it didn't boot anymore.

    Commented out latest kernel in /boot/grub/menu.lst (2.6.28-11), and now with kernel version 2.6.27-14 it works fine.

    Regards.

    Doesn't work neither on an Armada E500! How may I install an earlier kernel? Ubuntu doesn't fit in 100MB of RAM...

    I experienced basically the same thing with an Armada m700 (P3 500mhz ~256mb ram) though I just used the grub boot menu. I was able to occasionally boot when I moved the hard drive into a 1ghz m700 with 576mb ram. I forget if I tried just moving the ram from the 1ghz to the 500. Either way I was able to boot consistently using the previous kernel.

    at least I'm not the only one having trouble

    It happened to my M700 when I upgraded from 8.10 to 9.04. Says "Segmentation fault" and hung during booting.

    I reversed to 8.04.3 LTS just in case.

    I guess it is the kernel that is not supporting Armada motherboard.
