Daryna install fails on older Latitude Laptop

Postby BoilderHorn » 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?

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
