I was suffering with the following error while trying to install Ubuntu onto my Toshiba L630:
I bypassed the error and managed to install the OS by going into the Installation setup menu (by pressing F6 while booting from my Ubuntu Installation CD) and assigning
acpi = off. I believe this fixes the problem because it stops the laptop doing checks that aren't compatible with the software.
However, now that I have Ubuntu installed, I cannot run the bloody thing because I have no way of choosing
acpi=off before booting Ubuntu.
I guess this is a pretty broad question but I'm going to ask it anyways. Has anyone managed to find a version of Linux that works on an L630 without any errors? If not, Is there a way to choose
acpi=off before booting? Maybe by adding a line to the grub?
Also, does anybody think I'm wasting my time? I read somewhere that Toshiba laptops don't work well with Linux. So if there isn't a fix for this I would appreciate being alerted about this.
