this is my second post since i've joined this wonderful mint forums.
i have this same problem while installing ubuntu feisty. i have this d101ggc mother board with inboard ati express graphics accelerator. i can't enable the wobbly window effect (just having to remain content with seeing others enjoying it on their PC! errr!). it shows up on the restricted driver list and fails to work even after the system update (915resolution).
another thing, while i was installing from the live cd. an 2 error messages showed up while the kernel was booting up:
Code: Select all
[ 250.610095] Buffer I/O error on device fd0, logical block 0
[ 288.599647] Buffer I/O error on device fd0, logical block 0
while going through some other ubuntu forums i have found anything that can resolve my problem. so i'm counting on this form to try something for me.
