for those who don't know already: the current Elyssa gnome iso still contains an ubuntu bug which prevents it from booting on a large number of laptops and other systems.
When booting the cd, it crashes with the following error: udevd-event  : run program: '/sbin/modprobe' abnormal exit
AFAIK the bug has been traced back to the rtl8169 driver.
I think this is the ubuntu bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... bug/225749
The bug had been fixed in Ubuntu 8.04.1, but the current Elyssa iso still contains the bug. I'm posting on behalf of the people who'd like to get the Elyssa gnome iso working on their systems. Could you please tell us if there's a workaround (for instance an iso patch) or when a fixed iso will be available? We're really desperate to get this great distro working.
ps. I know that disabling lan is a workaround, but my bios doesn't have this option, so I need another solution!
Thanks in advance
