I went to my Linux group on Monday to try and upgrade my version of
Ubuntu to Edgy.
However the speech didn't seem to come up when I pressed F5 followed by
3 when the boot menu came up and it seems like even trying to install
without speech didn't work either.
I burned the Live CD myself at home.
For some reason it took an extremely long time to load Ubuntu as a live
version on my laptop, I got the music and the icons took ages to come up
but even when a Fully Sighted person double clicked on the install icon
on the desktop, the system just crashed.
I know there was talk of a problem with the desktop icon for the
installer in the info on having a spoken installation of Ubuntu from
running it live but does this problem affect the Sighted user as well
which was why I kept getting a system crsh?
As far as I know I don't have any problems with my CDs as I think it
does run as Live but I burned a fresh copy on Tuesday to see if I have
the same problem and as far as I can tell although I can't read the
screen without speech, the problem is still there.
I even tried checking my desk when I put it in my desktop machine but it
keeps trying to come up with that stuff on screen so I can't check to
see if all the files are there so the only thing I can see is something
like disk tree or something like that because it tries to run as live
when I am in Windows.
