My aunt gave me an old PIII office computer (dell optiplex GX115) and I want to install a nice fast linux and use it as a muck about machine, (and i wanted to learn how to package, compile kernel, etc.) so I downloaded and verified a copy of v5.8 std gold and burnt it. booted it up - no problem so far - formatted, made two partitions (its a 10G hdd) 9900MB (for main) and 100MB swap. When I tried to install - i Get the following error message
cannot extract required/veclinux.tlz
Maybe the file is corrupt, or the partition is full.
There is more to that message, but I cannot remember it
That is as far as I get. Currently the only thing I have been able to install is Damn small linux - with some weird artifacts on the taskbar and window borders.
