http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm trying to install Xubuntu 12.10 on an old amd 1.5Ghz amd with 1.5G ram. It boots from cdrom fine and you can run it quite happily from the cd. On attempting to install it has a fatal error when the slideshow starts up and drops back to the desktop to allow me to investigate but leaves no clues at at all. How can investigate further?
