I'm completely frustrated at ubuntu right now. I've always been a windows user and i decided to give ubuntu a try. I partitioned 10 gig for it with partition manager, and then burnt a cd with the latest ubuntu on it. I booted from the disc and choose to boot/install. It goes through its whole process and finally gives me this error ->
"Failed the start the X server(your graphical interface). It is likely that it is not setup correctly. Would you like the view the X server output to diagnose the problem?"
I've also noticed that if I let the screen sit there for a second another error fills my screen, it reads ->
bcm43xx: Error: Microcode "bcm43xx_microcode5.fw" not available or load failed.
I've tried this with 4 different times, redownloading ubuntu, burning it to a new cd, trying again. I tried ubuntu ultimate as well, just to check. I also tried changing the F4 settings from VGA to 600x480x16 and 800x600x32, as well as booting into graphics safe mode. EVERYTIME i got the same error.
I've even skipped the disc all together by using a windows auto-installer. It worked, completely installed linux and after i rebooted and chose to boot into ubuntu, it starts to load and gives me the same exact error screen.
My system specs ->
Dell Inspiron 9400
2 Gig RAM
Intel Duo Core, 1.8ghz
ATI Mobility Radeon X1400
At this point i've got no idea how to get this up and running, ideas?
