I have been trying to install Xunbuntu 12.04 from CD image on an ACER TravelMate 2350. I got as far as creating a user account only for the system only for it to crash out. I restarted the install again, got past the user account creation this time and the install had started but this time got the following:
Installation Failed [Errno 5] Input/Output error: '/rofs/usr/share/ubiquity-slideshow' This is often due to a faulty CD/DVD disk or drive. It may help to clean the CD/DVD, to burn the CD/DVD at a lower speed, or to clean the CD/DVD drive lens (cleaning kits are often available from electronics suppliers).
I clicked ok and the following was displayed:
Installer Crashed We're sorry; the installer crashed. After you close this window we'll allow you to file a bug report using the integrated bug reporting tool. This will gather information about your system and your installation process. The details will be sent to our bug tracker and a developer will attend to the problem as soon as possible.
I clicked ok on this message and the screen froze so I was unable to complete the bug report.
I'm new to Linux and this is my first install. Windows XP has been wiped, as when I attempted the install again it asked me if I wanted to replace Ubuntu 12.04 with Xubuntu 12.04 or run it alongside it. I appear to be stuck with a half built machine.
A couple of questions:
Is there any way to recover from this error? Should I create a new CD image and try again?
Is there any way to manually create the bug report and gather all the info needed as mentioned in the error above? Where would I raise this bug report?
I'm new to Linux so any help that can be given would be much appreciated.
