Elyssa XFCE: install doesn't start

Postby @go » Sun Sep 21, 2008 4:22 am

Hi, I'm trying to install Linux MInt Elyssa XFCE on an old Celeron laptop with 200 MB of RAM, the liveCD boot succesfully, but when I click on the Install icon everything hang, even the mouse cursor, and I have no choice other than shut down manually. Any ideas? Thanks

Make a swap partitions 1st then reboot.
This should give enough memory for the installer to run.
It's going to be very slow though.

If this doesn't help look here:

Thanks, I managed to create a swap partition, and finally the Installer started. :o
