My computer only like Mandrake!!!!

Postby Daboo » Thu Jan 02, 2003 8:40 am

I thought the installation problem was due to the CD-ROM so yesterday I got it changed.

I tried installing Red Hat 4 times, on the 5th try it installed. But while I was writing an email, a click sound from the computer and then everything froze. Tried installing ASP, stalled, Debian I got half way. Mandrake installed on the first try but froze once just the same way as Red Hat. I don't know what it could be. I even got the hard drive replaced. It is like a winding sound, then a small click, and then everything freezes. Also why does Mozilla mess up on Mandrake. It just crashes and refuses to boot again.

were you able to isolate where theh sound came from? there are alof if pieces of hardware that could cause that problem, but only a few usualyl make noice

hard drives, cdroms and fans being the big ones

Mandrake versus Red Hat

Postby Daboo » Sun Jan 12, 2003 3:38 pm

I got the CD-Rom replaced from LG to HP. The Hard Drive seems fine. But it refuses to install Red Hat. Reads music and Mandrake CD. Also could this be due to a bad cd batch of Red Hat flooding the market, as one common thing is that Linux Racer is very slow on it.

as far as the sounds are concerned, i really think that's a hardware specific issue.

Where failing to install Redhat is concerned : YES, the copies of RH 8.0 flooding the market are messed up. The second CD fails in the test, while the first CD, even after passing the test, is plagued with a critical missing file, as a result of which installation is aborted
