Can't seem to run Zorin OS 9 RC on my laptop which is in my signature below, which sports a core 2 duo processor 2.33Mhz. nouveau/xorg and compbiz errors....can't idle down 0xcccc0000 & 0xcccc0001. This is having to do with my video card or graphics: Nvidia Quadro NVS120/256MB.

I'm seeing more and more that these newer distro's coming out are not geared toward older systems....we're slowly being squeezed out...

example of messages:

624.441763 nouveau E[ DRM ] GPU Lockup-switching to fbcon
nouveau E[XORG 6254] failed to idle channel 0xcccc0000 [xorg 6254]]

Also same types of messages for compbiz as well......then after a few minutes of these messages, picture or desltop colors are garbled/scrambled, then just bounces back and forth between the two....messages and garbled desktop colors...

Hi Andrew, I am suspecting that if my memory serves me correctly, the RC was a 'pae' version which caters for the 'ix' series of Intel processors - let's hope they release a generic kernel in the final release! Have you checked if Ubuntu 14.04 runs in live mode on your Notebook?

I'm in Ubuntu 14.04LTS right now, while typing this, so, this is evidence enought that there is a slight flaw in the development in ZORINOS 9 RC.....I get as far as the screen where you have the choice of install and trying it out, after that, that's where the error codes that I posted earlier come into play. I know you all do very good and hard work in the development of your OS, but I think you overlooked something while putting it all together.....BTW, I've run PAE on my laptop before and had no problems......how soon before OS 8 core goes EOL....

Hi Andrew, Firstly for clarity I am NOT a developer - just a desktop user with a bit of experience of various flavours of GNU/Linux. All I can say is that I hope the Zorin brothers do take note of your post and can rectify it.

In respect of Zorin 8 - 17th July - just around the corner - just like Ubuntu 13.10 on which it is based. ;)

I apologize for that...didn't mean to imply that you were a developer, but I do know they put a lot of hard work and effort into these OS's.....I hope they see this as well, cause I really like Zorin and 9 looks like a great one....especially being an LTS....thank you for your quick response

Has anyone heard from any of the devs on this to see if they've made any changes to the ISO's......I'd really like to run this on my laptop and check it out for myself......I really like Zorin OS....so far, it's the most stable of all distro's I've used.....thanks guys ;)

A Thought:

If one can burn and boot up to or into Ubuntu 14.04 LTS without issue, what was done differently or taken out when Zorin OS 9 RC was subsequently put together. Shouldn't whatever was in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS been used so that everyone could enjoy this new OS version of Zorin.....I would think so, as I would love to use this on my laptop. Cheers :D
