[linux-dell-laptops] Mandrake 7.0 Install Problems
- I am attempting to install linux Mandrake 7.0 deluxeon the following
Dell Lattitude LM166ST Laptop
40 MB Ram
2.1 GB Hard Disk
Neomagic 128ZV Video Card with 1.1MB Ram, VESA 2.0 compliant
Windows 98 (release 2) on a 1GB Partition
One 1GB extended Partition (empty)
I am having the following problems:
1) Using the boot disk that came with Mandrake, after reaching the
message saying "Level 1 of install", I get the following message
"X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't Connect: errno = 111"
2) If I try entering "linux text" at the boot prompt with the mandrake
boot disk, the program locks up when it gets to the language selection
3) I copied the txt_boot.img to a floppy and booted it from it. When I
use "workstation" install, I get to the point after I have selected
some packages to install and it says "535 MB required, disk space not
available". If I select "install anyway" in copies all the files, and
when it is done copying I get a "install program exited with signal 11"
and it tells me to reboot. A few times I have tried to go back to
custom after the disk space error, and it looks like the system is
creating 3 partions, 1 boot, 1 linux, and 1 swap.
Is there something wrong with the computer, or is it just this version
of Mandrake? Any ideas on how get around these issues?
