Nope, not a thing.

What did you do to install? What version? What hardware were you using? What failed? What was in the logs?

For the information you DID provide, you were given suggestions on what to do to correct the situation.

You didn't like that.

No error messages, unwilling to back out known experimental applications, and just saying the software doesn't work.

Nothing that can contribute to understanding your problem or to generate helpful responses.
I actually did. And that was immediately labeled as users' fault. I asked a question about possible venue to resolve this. No joy. Now that even virtual install failed, it's still users' fault. If someone else kept blaming you for failures in both scenarios, would it make any sense to you?

You have not said anything at all about "how" it fails and continue to ignore requests for the smallest useful detail.

You only repeat, "Does too! Does too! Does too" like a child demanding attention.

Your posts also demonstrate a total lack of regard for truth that might cause some presidential candidates to blush.

Others here are still offering to help if you will interact with them. I myself, am done and would like to see this thread closed if your current rather infantile behavior persists.

Actually, yes. It would have told me I was doing something wrong, and would then ask how to try to correct that, or where to go to learn more about why it was the wrong thing to do.

The simple answer is that using the wrong drivers for something will not work, assuming it is a driver that is failing.

I have done that - but I also looked at the error messages reported, Googled for additional information, and found out what I had done wrong.

So, 6 posts from the OP later, still nothing but rants, no information that would be needed for us to help.
Thread closed.
