There's a known issue with Dropbox, we're waiting for a fix. Intel - you should be fine there, Intel contribute a lot to the Linux kernel.

The procedure for updating the proprietary Nvidia graphics driver wasn't too bad, now the computer is pretty much rock solid, anything I try to do goes smoothly, no freezes anymore. I did have a small problem with not being able to use Dropbox though, I uninstalled and installed it few times but I ended up having to go out to the Dropbox site and use their installer, now the thing works.

I've got a few other systems I'd like to get LL on, but I think the video driver is Intel based, hopefully I can get those going as well.

Anyway, To the people who gave help, Thanks !

Installing the Nvidia driver is covered in the help manual under "Video Drivers" just scroll down to the heading "Graphics - NVIDIA" and follow the instructions.

Install the Nvidia driver instead of running open source nouveau . The freeze will go away then.
I am busy testing AntiX 15 presently so I am not on my LL box.

Hopefully some other member will give the instructions on getting the Nvidia proprietary driver going for you.
It is pretty easy as far as I know in Linux-Lite.

Thanks for the feedback.

I tried to do those inxi -Fxz and inxi -G, my system freezes when I do them. But I was able to create a system report which is attached.

I agree with  rokytnji the next thing is to get more info about your hardware so the people with the experience can get an idea of where the problem lies. Open a terminal and run the inxi code  rokytnji posted and post back with the results.

inxi -Fxz is what I use to give specs like I did when I joined this forum.

Might help knowing what you have for starters.

Code: [Select]
inxi -G
shows graphics info. I know Jerry likes for new users to use

Menu, System, Create System Report. Attach it to your next post. Cheers.

But being a PITA sometimes. I am not a new user so I suggest other things.
It's his baby, so at least create a system report and attach it so members know your gear.

inxi is in LL 2.4 so I figure I might as well use it since I am comfy in terminal.

For the cdrom question.

Code: [Select]
cd /dev
Hit enter/return key.

Then type in

Code: [Select]
ls
Look around for sro and cdrom. If both are in there. I'd try /dev/sro before /dev/cdrom. Some apps prefer sro.

Avj,

I checked and my md5 checksum is indeed correct, your method saved a bunch of time but I still would like to know how to check things using the script I have, I just need to know how to set the path for the Cdrom device but I am not that up on Linux directory structure.

I just did a system information check, I chose summary on the left side right below where it says computer, my system freezes up. I noticed on the bottom is says "Scanning: Display...",

We know my checksum is good, What do I need to do next in order to solve this freeze problem ?

I am sorry but I have no idea how to read the checksum from a cd/dvd if thats possible.  The easiest way to check the md5sum for the iso is to open the file manager and navigate into the directory where it was downloaded, if you still have it, and right click on the .iso file and go down the list to "Check Md5sum" click it and when it finishes it will display a string of numbers and letters. Check this string against the md5 checksum available on the page you downloaded the iso from.  If every thing matches the download is ok, if not you should download the iso again. I usually use a download manager that has md5 checking built in and put the string in so it can be checked after the download completes without me having to do anything extra. One such download manager is an add-on for firefox called "down them all" it is the one I use, but you may find others.

I need a bit of help in setting the path to the cdrom to do check the hash. I got a hash checking script from Ubuntu and saved it on my desktop.

Is /dev/cdrom the path I want ? I can see cdrom there but don't know if that's the one I should set the path for.

One of the first things to get out of the way is to ask if you did a md5 sum check after downloading Linux Lite if not you should probably do that first. This will verify that your download wasn't corrupted due to network problems.

Hi folks,

I've been through about 7 installs of various versions of Linux - Ubuntu 14.04-2 LTS, Lubuntu 15.05, Lubuntu 15.04 Alt, and now Linux lite 2.4, all 32 bit versions. The basics of my system- 2 MB ram, Intel core 2 duo, onboard VGA support.

I got Ubuntu installed but had freezes most of the time (barely useable), Lubuntu would freeze up during install procedure, Linux lite 2.4 installed fine.

I was really happy as Linux lite seemed to fit the bill better than the other versions of LInux, but sometimes I would still freeze up like when I would try to use Firefox, check display config screen settings, and doing stuff in the terminal. But Linux lite is *FAR* more stable than anything else I've tried so I'd like to see if we can fix this or at least find out why my probs are happening. The bad part is that when I freeze up I can't get into the terminal at all, Ctrl - Alt- F2 or CTrl - alt- T will not work, are there any other key combos that can get a terminal going ?

I'd appreciate if someone who has more skills than I do can give me some ideas on what to check out, etc. Do you have a pastebinit thingie that I can use to ship you more detailed tech info on the system ? Tell me what you want me to do.

I really like what the Linux Lite team has done, you Dev folks have done a very nice thing, but hope we can get the system more stable.

Thanks,
glin22
