After reading Jeff’s post on the new gOS Space 2.9, I was psyched to try and port it over to the CloudBook. The operating system looked sick (as in awesome, not physically ill) on his desktop. The transparent dock on the bottom made the whole screen look sleek and the celestial wallpaper gave the system a more futuristic aura. I figured if any system needed a refreshed gOS, it was the CloudBook (which came running gOS Rocket). Therein lay my mission: become the Joan of Arc of the CloudBook and get gOS Space to run on the ailing system. I downloaded gOS Space 2.9 to my desktop computer and burned it as an image file to a DVD. I had no problem then plugging in an external optical drive to the CloudBook and booting up the disk from the BIOS on the system. After a few minutes of processing, the system prompted me with a gOS menu page and asked if I would like to install the OS to the hard drive and boot up. I selected Yes. However, after about 2 minutes an error screen appeared. It reads:
The display server has been shut down about 6 times in the last 90 seconds. It is likely that something bad is going on.
Something bad, indeed. With an emoticon for emphasis, no less. I then repeated the process, but instead of selecting the Install option, I selected the Boot in Safe Mode option. I got the same error message. Any ideas of how to avoid this error and continue the installation process on the CloudBook?
