Linux Mint installation on Compaq Evo N200

Postby someoneinsane » Tue Mar 24, 2009 5:24 pm

My problem(only happened once) first was that it had text where it had different numbers(i forget) which increased on each line, then on each line there was "I/O error" which i figure has to do with rebooting problems, also after that when i insert the CD and then reboot the computer(Compaq Evo N200) i see the loading bar where it goes back and forth, and it just keeps on going.

Im using Linux Mint Main Edition 6

Here's some information from my computer im installing it on.

Compaq Evo N200 Laptop
On a Docking Station with CD Drive

Microsoft Windows XP
Version 2002
Service Pack 2

Intel(R) Pentium(R) III
Mobile CPU 700MHz
696 MHz, 192 MB of RAM.

Your Ram and cpu is not really enough for felicia main. I tried it on my compaq with 310mb ram and I gb processor and had the same results.The fluxbox edition might work better.or possibly the XFCE edition.
