[SOLVED] xubuntu 8.04/8.10 not booting - ZloboMiR - 02-24-2022

Hello,

Thank you for this wonderful software and for activating my account!
I have sent already a message via the "Contact Us" link, but it seems to be lost.
So here it is again:
I am playing with an ancient IBM 6269 N2G (Intel P3 733MHz, 256MB RAM). When I tried to boot xUbuntu 8.04 and 8.1, after the startup screen (Try xUbuntu ...) I got "Segmentation fault" and "Permission denied" errors. I checked the md5 sums of the isos, they are correct. Also tried on a modern PC, errors are the same. However version 9.10 boots fine.
Thank you again in advance for your time.

Best regards,

Which ISO file did you test?


RE: xubuntu 8.04/8.10 not booting - Steve2926 - 02-24-2022

Give exact name of ISO, size and download URL

Your PC has a 32-bit CPU, so presumably you have downloaded one of the 32-bit 8.10 ISOs ?

xubuntu-8.10-desktop-i386.iso

Fails!

Ctrl+r  grub2 mode does not boot ISO at all.
F1 (mem) works  (but may not work on 256MB system as not enough RAM?)

grubfm (partnew) works, E2B works.

Hello,

This is the isos I have tried:

http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/xubuntu/releases/8.04/release/xubuntu-8.04.1-desktop-i386.iso

and

http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/xubuntu/releases/8.10/release/xubuntu-8.10-desktop-i386.iso

I believe RAM size is not the issue, as the situation is the same on a machine witn Intel i5 and 4GB of RAM.
Anyway, I managed to install and run Antix, so please treat this one as low priority...

Best regards,

Ventoy does not support xubuntu 8.04/8.10 which are too old (the latest xubuntu is 21.10)

It's just like that Ventoy support Windows, but must be Windows 7+ (Windows XP is not supported).

Fair enough, I just thought that it could be an issue applying to other isos as well, or some easy fix.
Happy coding!

Did you try F1 or not?

When exactly I have to press F1 ?


RE: xubuntu 8.04/8.10 not booting - Steve2926 - 02-25-2022

F1 is a hotkey used in Ventoy. So obviously you do not press F1 when the PC is off or in Windows/Linux. You would press F1 once you have booted to Ventoy.

Just to help you...

1. Boot to Ventoy
2. Press F1 - [Memdisk] should appear at the bottom of the menu
3. Select your ISO file and boot.


RE: xubuntu 8.04/8.10 not booting - ZloboMiR - 02-25-2022

Thanks for the instruction. I pressed F1 in Ventoy and [Memdisk] in red appeared at the bottom of the menu. Next I selected the xubuntu 8.10 iso and pressed enter and... I got "No ramdisk image specified!".
