I've been trying to install 12.04 for quite a while now and I can't get it working.
I downloaded the desktop-amd64 version of Ubuntu from the official website, used the Lili USB Creator following the official tutorial (just in case, cause it's not that difficult), I booted on the USB stick, and that's where things get complicated.
Whatever option I select (Try Ubuntu, Install, Check files) I get the same problem:
nouveau 0000:00:whatever ... unknown i2c port 51 Failed to parse init table
Still no response after 20ms, skipping opcodes and this on several lines (but the same error).
I looked on the Internet and found it is because there is no 3D acceleration support, but I couldn't find any solution. I also tried to install different desktop versions like KDE and others, but still the same problem, as I expected.
I beg someone to try to explain me what to do, cause I need Linux on my computer (who doesn't, heh ?) But seriously, I need it for studies, and I don't want to have to use a persistent live USB, assuming this would work. Which I'm not certain of (didn't try it though).
