Ubuntu 7.10 jeos fresh install, will not boot


I just installed ubuntu-7.10-jeos-i386
found on their website and it hangs up on start up
giving me "[<c02f1592>] error_code+0x72/0x80"

I believe all my base hardware is pretty standard.

Intel motherboard with on board video
Intel celeron 2.93GHz processor
1GB RAM
NEC 3540A DVD±RW
Hard drives I have 40GB, 40GB, 80GB, and a 320GB
Realtek AC'97 Audio
NVidia GeForce FX 5200 PCI video card 256MB
NVidia GeForce FX 4000 PCI video card 256MB
(yes three screens)
3.5" multimedia card reader
12"x9" adesso tablet (not hooked up, I have to get a regular mouse)

only have one 40GB hard drive hooked up by itself on IDE and one DVD±RW
I had successfully installed it but still gets stuck time after time, while booting.
*is it the video cards?
*should I try another drive configuration? (I've even tried having only the HD hooked up)

After this I'm going to disconnect everything that is not needed and try booting again. and also using the on board video

Current Setup here

have you tried passing ide=nodma to the kernel.

You realise that JeOS is intended to be extremely minimal - intended for developers who use VM a great deal?

You want to run a server triple-head?!

Note JeOS is not the server version - there is an explicit "server" ISO for gutsy.

*nix servers are typically headless.

I got my buddy at work that identified the errors for both being the hard disk/IDE controller problem. and taking a second look at the drive I saw one of those bastard little jumpers that don't have plastic on it. and so I just got home from the casino so I'll try it now. I'm going on hour 40 w/o sleep anyhow so I might as well tool around a bit till I pass out.

I'll be back with updates

oh and while I'm thinking about it, can't I use the unpartitioned space on my disks and mount them so that I have tons more space?

JeOS is for VIRTUAL MACHINES ONLY

JeOS is not designed to and WILL NOT run on desktop hardware. It will only run in a Vmware virtualized environment.


Ubuntu provides a server version, which is in fact minimal. In addition to being minimal it has a linux kernel customized for server purposes. It is not good for a desktop environment, and trying to use it as such merely re-adds what you refer to as "bloat". Perhaps you should move those video cards to a different machine, or reconsider if your machine really fits the server role.

The desktop version of Ubuntu will still be quite stable and suitable for running lightly used services such as apache or mysql. It ships with drivers and a kernel better matching the desktop computer pattern.

No.

Partitioning uses a negligable amount of space. You are probably thinking of the overhead associated with a filesystem, but that can not be omitted. If you are storing mostly large files you can change the block size of the file system when you format it.
