Linux Distro for a toughbook


Hello all,

I have been having trouble installing any Linux distro on to a Panasonic Toughbook CF-18. It has a 1.1 GHz processor, 504 MB of RAM. I have tried Bodhi, Mint, Lubuntu, and Ubuntu Mate. Every time i boot up it comes to an option screen, i select the install option, most of the time it freezes up. On Bodhi i get a command prompt screen that has only symbols, no real words. I have tried each one on new USB drives, and New downloads, and on CD and DVD. can some one tell me what i could try next to get this to work or maybe another OS that will allow me to do basic spread sheets and text docs. Thank you.

Hi nitsud, and welcome to LQ.

Now that you have created another thread with your Toughbook query - https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ro-4175638423/ - can you please edit the title of this thread here and replace the text with a "hello" statement or equivalent. If not, you might find that your second thread is deleted as a duplicate.
