Installation Problems

I have come across a weird case were the Ubuntu live cd is refusing to install. It give me the error that “kernel panic - not syncing (or somethin to this regard)”. Then it goes on to tell me to run the installer with this option, noapic.

What does this all mean?

Thanks for the help.

Hardware incompatibility

Sounds like hardware incompatibility. Using the ‘napic’ option is a workaround that makes some hardware work, at the cost of reduced performance and possibly some devices not working.

I’d first try the most recent Hardy Beta CD, and see if that works.

Then google to see if anyone else with the same laptop is having trouble. Also see if it’s listed on the LaptopTestingTeam wiki page
