yes it is upgrade time again.
I want to do a fresh install on a old dell laptop. until now it ran xubuntu gusty. the notebook has ~380 RAM
So donwloaded live CD and booted from it and it always gets stuck whith 'starting GNOME desktop manager'
I tried different things for booting the machine
vga=792 - this was needed in gutsy
nosplash... to see what is happening
fully live cd
live cd with graphics compatibility (or whatever it is called) mode selected (F4 during boot)
as soon as the boot process hits this 'starting GNOME desktop manager' CD-drive and fan spin down and it goes qiet.
any ideas? I was hoping to get this one upgraded by tomorow...
