Hi...

This is because you're using the number "1" instead of the letter "l" or "L". Try doing it again using the "l," as in lspci.

Or just copy and paste below...

Code:
lspci -nnk

Using the l or "L" instead of 1 works, but there is so much info. What exactly should I be looking for? And how does one scroll through the pages of info that zips by so fast?

Hi...

There shouldn't be that much info from lspci but if you would, please copy and paste the entire output from the command I gave you into your next post. Most, if not all, terminals I've seen in Ubuntu allow you to scroll up or down to see the entire output given from a command.

Regards...

Hi...

To be honest, I've never seen an lspci report look like that before. It looks garbled and I'm not sure what to suggest. Hopefully, someone who knows more will...

Regards...

This sounds like you have a bad download.

(Did you check it, there should be an md5 checksum or similar on the website from where you downloaded it.)

Edit: To see what gets spat out when text rolls off your screen, pipe it through less, such as,
Code:
dmesg | less

I will have to retype the report and put in all of the words. The report was reformatted when it was uploaded and all the spaces were condensed.

Googling hints that your system uses a Pentuim D chip from intel. Supposedly a 64 bit dual core. Basically not sure why you're having this much issue unless you have some hardware issues. My first thought would be a fresh power supply. And check the cooling, it could by dying on the install due to thermal issues. You might also try pulling all the ram chips except the bare minimal in case you have some bad ram chips. The blotchy screen makes me wonder if your monitor isn't going out, but it could just be the video card and driver.

If you have another machine, you might install the OS on it and swap the drive into that one to boot it. This should get you a little further if you are having thermal issues.

It makes a fine playtoy/media center in my motorcycle shop. I'd make sure hardware and md5sum check of iso were up to snuff
1st before trying a linux install myself. As already suggested by previous posters.

Does there seem to be anything out of the ordinary in this lspci report? I did the dmesg | less. The report was at least 12 screens long, but I was able to scroll through it. Should it be that long normally? It was in black and white. The dmesg report is in color, but I cannot scroll through it. What should I do next? I did download the 64 bit iso and tried to load it, but it did not install at all. The ram passed all of the memory tests I ran on it. One of my boot cd's has a mini xp program on it. It runs fine on this computer, but I can't run ubuntu from the iso disks at all. The monitor works fine with other computers.

$ cat /proc/cpuinfo

It shouldn't be missing things, but it might. If /proc/cpuinfo has " lm " in the FLAGS part then it is 64 bit. Otherwise it's NOT 64 bit, aka 32 bit. If /proc/cpuinfo has " pae " in the FLAGS then you don't need to do too much special. But if it doesn't have pae, Then that's something that will need special attention.

Shift + PageUP and Shift + PageDown will let you scroll in a terminal window.

Not that I can see. I run 32 bit isos on my emachine and not Ubuntu either.
If i had more ram in mine. I'd run a pae kernel. In a 32 bit iso install on that Emachine of mine.

Try and learn to use the code tag # symbol on advanced reply tool bar like I show below as a example of posting lscpi and dmesg readouts. I use the <snip> for leaving out cruft on a dmesg readout just for this example. Usually any errors is what you wish to keep in a dmesg post.

Code:

Putting a long readout in code tags compresses readout in a box with a scrollable side bar and makes the readout easy to read for forum members.

You might want to address the md5sum questions asked earlier also in your next post. Like did you do it?

I thought that also at one time shadow7. But my Emachine only boots 32 bit isos even though my inxi report posted earlier shows lm, pae and sse2 on that Pentium 4 D cpu.
