I switched to compatibility mode, and I get a little further now. But it comes up with this error.
There was an error starting the GNOME Settings Daemon.
Some things, such as themes, sounds, or background settings may not work correctly.
The last error message was:
Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
GNOME will still try to restart the Settings Daemon next time you log in.
I can't close the error box out and the CD just continues to spin and make noise hour after hour. Restarted about 6 or 7 times and get the same error every time.
Is there some options I can edit in the compatibilty or normal mode that might help?
Just to note, this laptop is a K6-2 475 MHz with 192MB of RAM, and it still has XP on it, 1 partition, whole disk. I had read that this error was seen in systems that had less than 512MB or RAM, and can't write to the swap space on the disk. I'm going to try to delete the partition, and see if it can create some swap space. If I can run XP on this crap, and not Linux Mint, why am I going through this exercise?
