Re: Lenny overheating, preventing installation
Starting the new 5.00 Lenny DVD and selecting (any type of) install, some 5 to
10 minutes into the installation process, my laptop overheats and shuts down.
It's a HP Compaq 6715b with an AMD Turion 64 and an ATI Radeon 1200. Needless
to say, I have the BIOS option "Fan always ON when on AC power" set to
enabled, but to no avail. Same happens if I set the option to off. Is there
ANY way to install Lenny on such laptops? Does it happen with other laptops
it could be a bug in the installer: did you tried to do as somebody
suggested to you: step by step install?
If you've tried with the 32-bit version you can try now using the
version for amd 64 or try ubuntu :-)
Any viable suggestions welcome!
