Question about AMD Duron , 700 MHz Processor

1 Answer

I've tried to install ubuntu+xubuntu on i686 duron 900? 256ram-

I've tried ubuntu x86-64bit, also xubuntu alternative amd64CPU.The ubuntu, which I'd ordered through the mail showed that it required x86-64CPU... that it only detected i686CPU...can't boot...install appropriate kernel! I don't know which might be appropriate, none show : specifically intended or suitable for - i686! Someone must know which is best for such a system?! I've looked around and asked questions.. after the ubuntu cd xubuntu was recommended, did not specify which, though. pls help thanks

    Thanks for response. It's a Duron 900. I hadn't even visited the ubuntu forums. There, there are many similar problems.What I didn't get was that x86 is i686! why would anyone guess that, who's not au fait with computer talk and all?! Thanks again for response,I see it's unfair not to put full details, thanx.

    Another thing: why not include "32bit" seems so easy, too easy?!

Not exactly sure what you are saying... but you DO have a Duron 700? That is 32-bit. No x64 for you!

If that is not what you're saying. You are saying that you received an Xubuntu alternate distro from Ubuntu? Ubuntu comes in prepackaged distributions for i686 (i386, i486)-32bit and x64-64bit.

You can download the Xubuntu for free at
http://www.xubuntu.org/get

Select the Hardy Heron i686 version. When you install, the installer "should" select the best kernel for your system.

Installing Ubuntu Server on Dell Dimension 2400?


Step 1:
The Ubuntu Linux operating system is available either with or without a desktop environment. The version with the desktop environment is meant for personal use and includes word processing, email and graphic editing software. The version without the desktop environment is called "Ubuntu Server." The server version does not come with any graphical software or productivity software. There are three different desktop environments available for the Ubuntu operating system. The default is the Gnome desktop. The other two are the KDE and the XFCE desktop environments.

Log into the server. Type the command "sudo apt-get update" to update the list of software packages available. Type the command "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop" to install the Gnome desktop. Type the command "sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop" to install the XFCE desktop. Type the command "sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop" to install the KDE desktop. Type the command "sudo reboot" to reboot the server. Ubuntu Linux Tutorials,Howtos,Tips & News http://www.ubuntugeek.com/install-gui-in-ubuntu-server.html

I do not like Ubuntu 11.10 can I go back to Ubuntu 10.10?


Many people don't like the new nity interfaced that was first introduced in Ubuntu 11.04 but luckily, many other linux distro are based on ubuntu so instead of going back to either 10.10 or 10.04, I suggest you take a look at elementary OS (www.elementaryos.org), linux mint (www.linuxmint.com), lubuntu (www.lubuntu.net) or xubuntu (www.xubuntu.org).
All these are operating system built on ubuntu so you will be familiar with how it all works but you won't have to deal with the Unty interface you don't like from Ubuntu 11.10.

Well, Linux used to pride itself for being able to run on almost any machine. Ubuntu has become bloated over the years, but more user friendly. You may want to try an older distro like Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Long Term Support): http://releases.ubuntu.com/8.04/ You will want the PC (Intel x86) desktop CD version ubuntu-8.04.4-desktop-i386.iso

Or Xubuntu: http://www.xubuntu.org/getubuntu

Or Lubuntu: http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=lubuntu

Please, for the sake of the internet. Upgrade you operating system. There is no reason for running such an out dated and insecure operating system. If your hardware is extremely old, you can try one of many distributions of Linux free of charge.Many of these distributions have been designed specifically for use on old hardware.
You can try Ubuntu: http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download
Or Xubuntu if Ubuntu if Ubuntu runs too slow: http://www.xubuntu.org/get#maverick

No sound from system with Ensoniq AudioPCI running XUBUNTU 9.04


There is but one cure for this problem I am afraid and that is install compatible drivers for Ubuntu and your sound card ,windows and Ubuntu are two diffrent languages completely ..
Most manufacturers realise that Linux/ubuntu is popular medie now and do have downloadable drivers on their site , however if you cant find rthem dont despair there are many quick savy programers who use ubuntu and they write their own programs to solve such problems . many of these you will find on the linux site or click on add on's in your menu to go to the ubuntu site for recent updates and downloads the cure to the problem is and only is compatible program drivers .. or a new card with same available ...

hello!

if its below 384mb ram you must use the alternate installer: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/downloadmirrors#alternate

You should also take out any extra pci cards thats not absolutley needed for the pc to be running. And put them back in when installation is finished.
