Daryna install fails on older Latitude Laptop

Postby BoilderHorn on Wed Nov 21, 2007 10:53 pm

When installing Daryna from the CD, the process makes it to the actual OS install to the HDD.
At 15% progress, it stops. I am using an ancient Dell Latitude C-series w/ p2-400, so that
might be the problem. It is painfully slow, yes, but I figured I could resurrect this laptop
for my kids to use and that Mint was the perfect solution.

Any suggestions?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Same problem for me... try the XFCE edition. it should install fine, I believe it is a problem with Gparted running out of ram. If you don't have more than 256mb it can give you problems. I could not get standard mint to install, but XFCE worked fine (And runs well also) give it a shot
