Re: IBM HS21 cant run UBUNTU 7.10 and UBUNTU 8.0



Hello

I am not familiar with your IBM machine, but I use opensuse 10.3 and
ubuntu 8.04. I feel comfortable with suse especially yast2. It makes the
setup pretty easy (IMO its better than ubuntu). Anyway, different
people has different tastes. So what video card you have there? if suse
works for you that means it could configure your video card properly
which probably ubuntu could not do. Have you tried ubuntu live cd?

we need more inform in order to help you.

Karl,

i tried doing what you have said but it doesnt work also.

My problem is, the computer successfully finish the installation but
when it restart there are only blank screen.

I tried debian 4.0, also the same experience. But when i tried SUSE 10
it works perfectly fine.

I want to use SUSE but im not comfortable with it. I want ubuntu
because all my applications are already built into that platform.

I really need your help guys badly.

thank you

Sounds like your new computer has the wonderful nVidia video card.
Please let your system boot up to no video. Then hold Ctrl and Alt and
press F1. Log in as you and do this:
$ sudo lspci
and see what video hardware you have.
