Bonjour tout le monde / Hello everyone  :)

Thanks again to Jerry for the greetings.

I've been following this forum for a little while now. I bought an old 14" Toshiba Satellite laptop, with 1.5 Gb RAM from the Windows Vista era, with a dysfunctional Windows 7 on it, for $30CAD, in view of installing LL on it.   8)

I've initially installed LL in September x2 but updates installation failed.... put it aside. I gave it a second go today, x2 failed installations (combined with updates), because hard drive was heating up too much and probably needed replacing, according to install assistant.  :o

I decided to cool this laptop down fast by placing it on the cold ceramic floor for 2 hours and see if I could safe myself a hard drive purchase.

I did the installation this time, opting for installing updates separately.  ::) So far so good !!

I installed Linux Mint Cinnamon 18 on my initial 10 y.-o. desktop when its hard drive died last year, and planning on installing LMDE on another desktop I just acquired for this purpose (this one has Ubuntu 16 on it, installed by the person who sold it to me).

I'm francophone from Québec. If I can be of some help in French, at explaining or translating, probably better than automated translators,  ;) I'll be pleased to do so. Keeping in mind that I'm a Linux newbie.  ::)

See you on the forums.
Helena from Québec  :)

Bonjour et bienvenue sur les forums Linux Lite! ;)

For the overheating, could be that the laptop needs an internal cleaning or that the harddrive inside is a 7200rpm and laptop was made for a 5400rpm that heats up less.
Or, for LL 2.x, I think there was something about a download repository that had to be modified in the configuration. If you can post the error message, I'm sure the nice
people in these here forums will be able to help you.

Just to let you know there is a French forum here too!

Encore une fois bienvenue et à la revoyure! :D
