    Debian Installation


    Hello!

    I have tried to install debian lenny several times in my PC but each time I would try to boot after updates etc. My PC would shutdown somewhere along the way. However, if run as single user, I am able to access files using CLI.

    The queer thing is that when I installed ubuntu 9.10, everything was installed perfectly. I cannot understand which is at fault. My HD or the CDs I downloaded or was it me doing something wrong during installation. I also tried a net install fyi and it seemed ok, until I boot into it and there it goes again. I read an error that says

    "debian contains file system with errors"

    Any ideas please? Thanks!

    EDIT: Dear mods, if possible, may I request this to be transfered to the Debian forums? Thanks

    Kind of sounds like when my power supply went bad...

    What speed are you burning the ISOs at? The general rule is 4X, and if that doesnt work, go lower. I managed to get along using 10X, but thats only because I didnt have the option to go lower.

    So, go as slow as possible, preferably 4X or lower.

    Does it through any other error? Have you tried to execute fsck on Debian's partition(s)?

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Thanks for your responses!

    For your information, I removed Debian and decided to install CentOS again.

    Casper: Thanks for moving this to Debian forums.
