Slack 12.1 spontaneously halts during installationb [Solved]
I have no idea what the cause is, but every time I try to install slack 12.1 via cd it gets a few sections into installing packages and then the computer just shuts down like i hit the off switch. The computer doesn't seem to be getting hot or anything.
I tried with the regular kernel huge.smp and huge.s, no change in problem.
I've got an Acer Aspire 7720 notebook. I've never had this problem before, with any distro i've tried to install. All in all I've tried over 50 distros, and never had this happen, only with Slack. I really want to try slack but i'm just plain unable to.
I couldn't find a 'bugzilla' or other type of bug-reporting area for slack so I came here.
Any other info you need I will try to provide.
I will try to get it up and running in virtualbox here soon. I'm currently installing Ubuntu 8.04 LTS as my go-to distro. (although I'm not fond of the bloat).
