I'm trying to install lubuntu (13.04) on legacy notebook (TOSHIBA Satellite 1405-S171, Video Chip = SuperSavage IX/C SDR, 512Mb RAM, Celeron) from CD.
Shortly: GUI install app doesn't work because of video card problem. Fortunately I can press ctrl + alt + F1 and jump to terminal session. How to continue setup from terminal? If I would succeed to install lubuntu I could update video driver later, but now when my system is loaded from CD I do not understand what I could do else... just to continue process from terminal..
Details: boot menu and splash screen works fine but Installer (that one that contains wizard "welcome/language list > choose timezone > choose name") is corrupted: only half of the screen shows something recongnizable, mouse pointer is black square and left "black trace", click doesn't work etc, but keyboard works well so I am able to jump to terminal.
lshw -c video and
sudo lspci -k doesn't show the video driver! May be somebody could explain what does it mean?
I have made some experiments with boot string setting
vga=XXX and some other boot string options. Splash screen react on them very clearly, but Installer in most cases ignores them. It seems Installer loads another driver. How could I prevent do to it from boot string options? Is it possible to say "use vesa"?
sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop doesn't work as I need, but may be it is possible from terminal a) mount to the notebook's disk b) install lubuntu to this disk and make this disk bootable?
