I normally don't feel like a super noob but I guess that was before I tried to make a LMCE install happen. When trying to install LMCE the first time I got:
int:rc-default main process (5220) terminated with status 255.
Above was a string of int unable to execute errors because of permission denied in (bin/sh) and a few segfaults for seasoning.
I thought that was odd and checked the integrity of the DVD on two machines, both came up clean. Memory check on the install machine (more on that including components later).
Tried the kubuntu install and got the same error but with a different line number (5058) and in etc/initd and it was "not found" instead of "permission denied."
Then I tried installing with quite and splash cleared and noted every "udeed-event run program [blahblah] failed"
Have XP on the HD (planned to wipe it in install if I get that far), went in and added the kubuntu grub menu, and on restart/install was only able to make it to busybox.
I assume I've got to change around the kernal parameters, but I've never done that, and couldn't find something that seemed appropriate to walk me through.
Anything would be helpful. System info:
[inherited Frankenstein that will correctly and fully run xp and ubuntu]
Intel i945P/G chip set [dual core 2.86GHz
MOBO: Intel D945GTP ver. AAC97834-301
Integrated video: Intel 82945G Express **more on this below
PCI-e Video Card: Nvidia GeForce 96000GT
Lite-On DVDRW SHW-160PGS
HD: Seagate Barracuda ST3160812AS [SATA]
Network Card 1: Integrated Intel Pro/100 VE
Network Card 2: linksys WMP110 Range Plus [PCI slot 1]
BCM v0.90 56K modem [PCI slot 2]
I have one monitor plugged into the integrated and another in the GeForce.
***Further interesting problem:
The BIOS has video settings that can be set:
Auto (chooses the PCI Express GeForce)
Or PCI (which doesn't have a graphics card in it)
I can not get the machine to boot to the LMCE DVD if the integrated chip is chosen, it will always go to the HD, even if it's below the DVD in the boot order. No problem with this on Auto or PCI-E. I'm not sure if this has something to do with the problem, but I'm going to keep playing around with it (unplug the HD, take out the cards, etc).
My goal is to ram through the install tonight, so if anyone can help me tonight I'd be doubly thankful.
