Gibbon Not So Great

Posted by: Anonymous [ip:] on October 25, 2007 11:20 PM
Hmmm, I wouldn't know if 7.10 was outstanding or not - on the two machines I wanted to install it, I had issues. The first should've been a no-brainer - P4 3.0GHz, 1GB RAM, nVidia 8600GT, 80GB PATA, Intel D101GG motherboard (Radeon Xpress chipset). Feisty worked great on this machine, but Gutsy wouldn't install, instead hanging the system hard.
Second install was for an HP dx2250 with Athlon 64 X2 4000, 2GB RAM, and SATA DVD and HD. No dice - won't even load the desktop. I kind of expected this, as it seems, for whatever reason, that SATA is a dealbreaker for some reason. Disappointing, to say the least.


Return to Ubuntu 7.10 is outstanding
