Please, tell me the schedule of your install fests.
Introduction of vista (I do not spell that beast from capital letter)
finally convinced me to switch. I think there are other people with the
I bought a computer on eBay (Athlon 3200, 1.5GB RAM, 200 GB HD, Sony DVD
RW), tried to install Debian on it and I failed.
Originally I wanted to make it dual-bootable (Debian and W-ME). I
installed ME, started downloading Debian DVD set. However, after about
an hour the machine restarted every time, download of first disk was
never completed. Probably ME can not handle this much memory. When I get
it to work with Debian, I'll try my remaining W applications (printer,
scanner) with WINE.
On another machine I downloaded a full set of Debian CDs for AMD64 (21
disks). Installation always terminates or freezes, every time it happens
on different point. I suspect the machine has a physical problem,
however I am unable to identify it.
Latest Knoppix starts, successfully plays sound from a USB flash drive.
However, when I try Open Office (at the same time with MPlayer), it
unexpectedly restarts (from the point where the voice says "Initiating
Start-Up sequence"). So, it successfully handles USB and sound; SiS
onboard network card is not recognized.
I did my home work, now I need help.
I'll be in the city next week, this Saturday to next weekend. Hope after
that I'll be able to start using my new machine with the full strength
of Linux, including printing, MySQL and peercasting.
Sincerely, Alexander Deming.
