Selecting packages causes laptop to shutdown!
I recently installed ubuntu 6.06 on my old pentium 3 laptop. I wanted to install alexandria library so I went to synaptic package manager and found it clicked "mark for installation" and then a window appears saying that it requires aditional packages so I click OK then approx 3-5 seconds after my laptop turns off. It doesnt shut down it just turns off like someone has pulled the plug and it has done it twice now, each time I select alexandria.
Does anyone know whats wrong, I have used synaptic package manager before with no problems but this time it just shutsdown.
