Ubuntu 'You have passed an unexpected mode...'
I am having issues with installing knoppix since the last three days.
It all started with me getting a book about linux - the book was awesome and all I wanted to do was to get Linux as soon as I could.
Then a friend gave me a live CD of Knoppix. I tried to install it but then as the CD was loading up it said ' You have passed an unexpected mode' even before the CD was loading!!! As expected the screens were messing up each other. That was fine ... after all all I wanted was a terminal and a vi !!!
I have an old desktop (had win98) given to me by a friend but I thought that old pcs worked better.
Next this friend gave me a Ubuntu CD. Ubuntu seems to have a lot more problems - not only the GUI is bad - it constantly freezes my pc.
I tried to load Knoppix again - this time with the knx2hd command - then there comes an error msg saying that some amount of memory is insufficient :o- things go so bad that I delete the win98 partition I had.:eek:
The msg tells me that if I knew what I was doing (which I am sure I do not) type 'IGNORE_CHECK=1 sudo knoppix-installer' which I promptly do - bad news - it tells me that it did not find some file /dev/1
Please help I am going to crazy with this going on.
The worst thing is when they say that you can load Knoppix in 20 mins - it makes me feel so bad about all this :twisted:
