Redhat Linux Installation

By rajasthandajatt ·
Hi!!
I am facing a problem while installing REDHAT 7 on a old computer.
I have the following configuration :
a) Processor :-- CentaurhaulsuB 336 MHz
b) Bios -- Award Modular Bios v6.00PG (23 Apr 2001)
c) Mother Board-- TWJ0606Z i810-W83627F-6A69MB0AC-00
d) Hard disk-- 8.4 GB (Seagate)
e) Video Ram 1 MB
I tried to install RedHat Linux 7, but there was problems, the system got hanged during copying files, not at a particular file , randomly.Is it due to Video RAM?
Is there any solution, means do linux support this hardware.
There is no problem with CD , bcoz when I tried to install it on Intel PIII 500, there were no problem.
Thanks in Advance.
Bye

Try doing the install in Text mode if you haven't already.

Try the installation again in tect mode, and don't install X.
With only 1MB video RAM, you can't realisticly expect X to run properly.

How much RAM does the sysem have? Are you creating a big enough swap partition?

Also, like everyone else said... install in text mode and skip the X packages.
