Troubles while installing Linux
I tried to install three different types of Linux OS on my comp.
1. OpenSuse 10.2 (32 bit)
It was installed properly on my comp but and I was able to use it after installing when Live cum Bootable CD was inside.
But when I removed the live CD, while booting OpenSuse was getting stuck and displaying the following message:
Mapping Active Devices...
2. Ubuntu Ultimate 1.4
While installing, I can see the Ubuntu logo, name when it is loading, but afterwards following message comes:
BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-3ubuntu3) Built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands
/bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
3. Sabayon 3.4
It is properly installed but can't detect sound driver and the following message appears on booting:
"Sound server informational message:
Error While initializing the sound driver:
device dev/dsp can't be opened (No such file directory)
The sound server will continue, using the null output device."
Also I can't run compiz.
I have Dell laptop Latitude D630. It's configuration is:
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7100 (1.8 GHz, 2 MB L2 Cache, 800 MHz FSB)
1024 MB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 667 MHz
120 GB SATA Hard Disk
Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family
Right now I don't have Linux on my comp.
But I've kept 20 GB unallocated space for Linux.
Please help me.
What shd I do?

You have to decide wish distro to use, and focus about the problem of only one version, i suggest for you ubuntu , but simply ubuntu , not any modified version, if you install it and have a problem post here, nothing special in your machine to give a problem with Linux.
regards.Linux is not only an operating system, it's a philosophy.

Trying to figure out what's wrong with several different distros at once is problematic within itself. Pick the distro you want to use. Then write down any problems with it. Then focus on fixing one problem at a time.
Be sure to make a new thread for each different issue and we'll see what we can do to help.oz
