Install failure (internet)

I'm having another crack at this, using Sounder 9.
Amongst the quick-scrolling text on pressing enter after the first 
splash screen, I've noticed the message:
FATAL: error loading thermal
scrolls too fast for me to read it, and i can't find it when later 
looking at dmesg.
I've googled for the phrase, but turned up nothing.

Can anyone help?
