Debian install failed

I'm trying to install debian on an old IBM PC 350. The installation kept failing several times, so i took the hard drive put it in a different computer and installed it without a problem, stuck the hard drive back in the PC 350 and it starts up, gets past the grub loader and starts to load debian, then restarts.

You might try running one of the live cd distributions to see if the machine hardware is supported that way. You do need a minimum of 128 MB of ram, might be 192 for a live system. It could just be that the system doesn't have enough ram to run Debian, that would explain why it wouldn't finish installation, and why it fails to load now. Check the readme and release notes for minimum system requirements. Maybe you would do better with a leaner distro like DSL?

What are the issues about Linux Operating System


There are MANY Linux operating systems. The main ones known are Ubuntu, Fedora, PC Linux OS, OpenSUSE, Cent OS, Linux Mint and Debian.

Debian is the mother or what Ubuntu and Linux Mint is built from. Debian is considered to be stable. Ubuntu is also supposed to be stable as is Linux Mint. The advantage of these two are ease of use. Debian, Linux Mint and Ubuntu are using .deb packages for applications to be installed.

OpenSUSE uses .rpm packages. It is also considered as stable, but not as widely used as Debian (and the other two) CentOS and Fedora.

CentOS is mainly used for Server purposes. However, in the installation, there are many types of installation options, including Desktop. CentOS is based on the Enterprise version of Red Hat. This is what mainly more and more websites are running off of as it is extremely STABLE and FAST!! So Cent OS is the free EXACT version of Red Hat. Fedora, is the test bed for Red Hat , carrying the LATEST technology being made available to anyone for free.


ALL of these operating systems, except Red Hat, are for FREE. All applications are for FREE. Just to let you know, Google also is using a Linux version for their phones now as well called Android, which you can also acquire for FREE.

The only disadvantage that used to exists until recent is that you could not play all the latest and greatest games on Linux. Now with Steam, you can play anything.

There is a myth that you could not install Windows applications on Linux. You can use Wine on Linux to install Microsoft Windows Applications. If you are having a problem, you are probably missing some files for wine to make it work properly.

Linux is also being used in cars. Check out Toyota and Mercedes Benz that is using Ubuntu. Linux is big and amazing.

Hope that answers your questions.

Un able to install HP 2410 Scanner in Ubuntu 10.4


Here is the site where you can download Iscan program:
AVASYS Corporation web site to download Iscan http://www.avasys.jp/lx-bin2/linux_e/scan/DL1.do
Once you download it and try to run it, it might ask you for a missing library that needs to be installed. It depends on your destripution or Ubuntu release version. I am using 10.04 on my computer. If you get that message, here is the link to go and download this library from Debian site

Debian web site download page http://packages.debian.org/lenny/i386/libltdl3/download
Install the library then re-run the iscan program and you are done, enjoy. Just one more thing when you run the Iscan for the first time you will need to run it as root, to be able to search and find your scanner.

How we can install Linux ? please easy method write down here


Just download and install any lightweight Linux distribution, and then write it to a CD or DVD with a CD writer program. If you don't have one and use Windows, you should try ImgBurn.

Some Linux distributions that should run well on this laptop are:

http://www.xubuntu.org/
http://lubuntu.net/

Cannot re-install Windows on corrupt debian OS


best way to kill this off and start fresh would be to make a windows 98 bootdisk (can be found on bootdisk.com) put the floppy in and it will boot to dos. In dos type fdisk and hit enter and it will bring you to a partition menu. In that menu delete the non dos partitions, reboot the computer and run windows setup again.

Linux on LG e200 or r200


Best way to find out is to download a live CD. If you're planning on running Debian, using the Ubuntu Live CD should demonstrate whether current Debian works on your system.

It may not auto-configure all devices in Live CD - don't be surprised if you find that USB headset or WIFI card doesn't work on boot - but at least it will give you a clear idea of whether the system works or not on your machine.

Ubuntu's 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) is reported to boot on the e200 in Live CD mode; you need to use "safe" graphics mode to do the install (after which you can install the correct video drivers).

Enjoy your new OS!

Debian on p655


Are you over thinking this? Have you checked the source and target media's file systems for 1: errors and 2: suitability of file system format? Have you confirmed the integrity of the source files? Questions like this can seem simplistic but when diagnosing any problem always start at the beginning. You are using an distro installer that is suitable for an IBM p655's architecture.
