Linux on FSC Amilo XA 2528?

Postby Sleaver » Thu May 07, 2009 9:36 am

Hi Folks,

I'm still trying to get Ubuntu on my amilo notebook :?
After reading this topic link I tried a USB boot and serval live cd boots (also 9.4 yaunty). None of these boots works and I don't have a possibility of making a netboot.

A friend of mine is now trying to compile the special ubuntu kernel (mentioned by KiAnKo here) in ubuntu 8.4 to make a working live cd but so far no success.

Does anyone have a successful way of installing linux on these notebooks?? Because my whole class got this notebook and serval people want to run ubuntu.

Some help here is really appreciated ;)

Thanks in advance :!:

Why can't you do a netboot? If you installed Ubuntu once successfully on one machine you can simply copy the HDD to other machines if all of your classmates have the same.

Maybe you should try another distribution. Besides Slackware and Fedora the latest version of openSuse works too as far as I know.

KiAnKo wrote it down here:

And as far as I remember, the problem with the DVD drive is only that you can't boot with the vanilla kernel. Other operations should work.
Which devices do you mean with "all the other hardware"?

I used the ubuntu 9.04 netbook remix and it seems to be working fine only the dvd drive isn't working (installation needs to be done by usb).

I think we need to wait till 9.10 or 10.04 to solve this last problem.

Here you can find a live-cd that works and that boots and installs on our xa2528 with working dvd-drive

Hi!

Maybe a little late, but a better way to install UBUNTU (without doing new kernal) might be using the "mini.iso" found here:
http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/hardy/main/installer-i386/current/images/netboot/ or
http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/jaunty/main/installer-amd64/current/images/netboot/ [64-bit version]

(change "jaunty" for new versions in the future, or starta http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/)

Now everything should work...
