Linux Install Fails
Posted on 1997-05-23
I'm trying to install Linux on following Machine :
Pentium 133 MHz, 32 MB RAM, Quantum Fireball 3,2 GB (E)IDE,
Samsung 12x ATAPI CD-ROM, ELSA Winner AVI1000 with S3-Chip.
I get very often some Segmentation Fault, and the machine hangs up. This error comes up sometimes while booting with the original Boot/Root- Diskettes, sometimes during Paket Installation, but it always comes. There are some other errors, which get the machine hanging (including such nice messages like "Kernel Panic...").
For installation purposes I'm using an older DLD-Linux, the new DLD (Kernel Version > 2.0) and the new Suse Linux. It's always the same, so my conclusion is, that I've got some hardware Problem. But what kind of ? And how do I get around it ?
