failed install vector 5.9 light
I am trying to resurect an old machine for my brother to browse the internet and watch utube vids, i have 4 or 5 machines to choose from, well mainboards.
I am not managing to make it so i thought i would ask for help.
The one next to me failing to boot up is a 1.1 duron, (the most powerfull) with a 2500MB weston digital drive and 2x (128 + 64MB) sticks of pc133.
I thought i had installed it but it came up with the error like;
Something went wrong, don't panic!
it also offered some command line apps, i tryed the one with help in and recognised even less of the apps so rebooted.
I am not totally sure of the partitioning i have done so i will run that by you first if i may.
right, i created 3 partitions but now going back in there are only two showing? I am in parted that i have chosen re-running the install process. I did not use this last time i am just looking to find what went wrong. and it does not show the type82 hda5 swap file i made following the instructions. It only shows 2 partitions;
/dev/hda1 Type=ext2 Size=1407 Unused=0
/dev/hda2 Type=ext2 Size472 Unused=448
The sizes i chose were 1500MB hda1, type 83, primary, ext2 (stability and space)
512MB hda5, type 82, primary, ext2
5**(whatever was left) hda2, type83, primary, ext2
not sure weather i had to choose a ext for the swap as that bit came after (multiple choice type of questions).
I should probably start again, would someone please give me a bit more info on what to type in for my drive, remember this is only a browser but it needs to play utube, flash 9 it used to be absolutly nothing else is needed seriously.
btw, i have lost the ability to play utube on my fedora8 and cannot fix it even with posting for help on fedora forum, so i have not used it for quite a while and i am obviously not to smart so please consider this with your replies if any.
note sig is not relevant, and must be 3 years out of date. lol
