Can anybody please help!!!
I am very new to Linux and i am trying to install the LinuxMCE. I have downloaded the 64 and 32 bit edition in install them on a HTPC I have. I am currently running Vista on the machine but wanted to give Linux a go so see what it is like.
the spec of the machine is as follows.
Mobo Asus A8V Deluxe
GPU Ati Radeon 9800 pro
CPU 3200+ (64bit)
TV Card WinTV 350
HDD 1st 80gb SATA
2nd 250 SATA
3rd 20GB IDE
i have the vista installed on the 1st drive and am using the second as storage. i am trying to install Linux on the third so it doesn’t interfere with the other drive which i have disabled and removed when trying to install Linux with out any lick.
The problem I am having is I after the Live DVD starts I select install KDE 710 64 bit edition, the install starts fine, then after about 2 mins I get the message
Cannot allocate resource 0 of device 0000:00:00.0
And that’s where everything stops, I have tried waiting to see if it will continue but no such luck.
I have search extensively for a solution to this problem but so far I have been unsuccessful. from what I have read I believe it is linked to by 9800 pro, people seem to have found a way around by using different drivers, but like I said I am new and am unsure how to do this.
Am currently downloading Kubuntu alternate CD to give this a go but any help and advice will be very much appreciated
