Cannot install Mandriva One on laptop Aspire 5520G

Recommended Posts

Hope someone can help me.

 

I bought a laptop and wanted to replace Vista by Linux.

So decided to download Mandriva One, makde un CD and try to boot Linux from the CD.

Unfortunatly, Linux cannot boot, it stops in the process with the error message :

 

lspcidrake: Line too long at /usr/share/pci.ids, line 1

 

Does someone knows this pb and how to solve it ?

 

I'm sure the CD is OK

My laptop is :

ACER ASPIRE 5520G

AMD Thurion 64x2

NVIDIA GeForce 8400M

 

Thanks

Greetings!

 

Did you check the md5sum after you downloaded the file to verify its integrity? Did you burn at a slower speed, say 12X? These are the best ways to insure the burn is correct.

Yes I did : when I wrote "I'm sure the CD is OK" the meaning is :

I've checked md5sum after download from internet

And I used the lower speed to make the CD and also used the verification option after burning..

Thanks for your answer but, unfortunatly, this infomation do not help.

In fact, having searching on the net before posting my message, I found this link and have already look at it.

This is not the same problem. In this case, Linux was install, but did not work properly, then all what is proposed is for linux system.

In my case : Linux cannot boot from the CD, then I do not have a linux OS.

 

Anyway thanks for your answer...

Give some more information, what exactly does not work. Was wireless interface created, is driver loaded, is the network encrypted, etc? What kind of DVD did you put in the tray (data, video)?
