invalid compression with VL59 STD GOLD
« on: August 09, 2008, 10:47:51 am »

I'm not sure why but I get an invalid compression message when I try installing VL 59 - never had any problems with 5.8 but it could be because I'm running old hardware - thinkpad 600E to be precise.

I've checked the ISO and checked the burn against the ISO so the problem isn't with the disc. It could be that I should be installing a different kernel but there isn't a menu that I can see to check which might be the right one to install  ???

Any suggestions welcome - else I'll stick with 5.8 on this machine.

I had exactly the same problem on a thinkpad 600 with VL5.9 STD, VL5.9 light works OK though so thats what I installed.

WELL thanks. I don't think I had realised VL LIGHT was on the scene - I've downloaded and will try it out.
