Hi there. I am pretty newbie here in linux world. And having lots of problems with installation. The first distro which I want to try is Slackware. People over here say that it's the real linux. I like Slackware because it's simple and stable and reliable!
To cut a long story short, I's having problem when trying to install Slackware 12.2. I can boot it from DVD, then the kernel starts booting and when there's prompt theses symbols keep on being typed: ^[[B
I use TOSHIBA dynabook Qosmio F30/83A Laptop.
CPU: Intel Celeron M 440 @ 1.86GHz
RAM: 2.00 GB
Display Adapter: NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300 (256MB Memory)
1. While booting the kernel you should choose language map. The symbols I've mentioned above just keep on being typed but I can just hit the ENTER and it chooses default language map.
2. When I should type "setup" the same thing continues, but I can type "setup".
3. BUT when the setup window pops up I can't choose anything, because the down arrow key keeps on being typed, it always goes down and down. And ignores all keys...
I thought it's because of my keyboard, but when I tried 12.1 version it's fine at all! I tried to boot from Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, OpenSuse...still those four symbols keep on being typed
I need your help. I would really appreciate if you could help me to solve this problem! If you need any other information please let me know.
