Trying to install the new PCLinuxOS 2010 Minime onto a Dell Dimension 2350 with a P4 running at 2.20ghz and 1gig of ram. The video card stinks, 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated.
On the install, it does the partitioning fine. But once it starts the "Installing" part, it gets about halfway and then the screen goes blank like a screen saver kicked in and the cd eventually stops spinning and it's dead in the water.
Side note, if I just push the power button and let go, the system actually tries to shutdown like normal but gets an error stating that the hard drive can't be unmounted because it is busy. I have left it in this hung state overnight just in case it was taking a really long time. Trust me, once it hangs it's dead.
Using Gparted to completely delete all partitions before the start.
I verified the check sum, did a media check on the pc in question (passed) and have successfully installed from this very media on a different box with similar specs.
EDIT: is there at least some way to watch the install so I can have a clue what it's doing when it fails?
