    Has anyone been able to succesfully run Ubuntu Server on build 1940? I tried it on a VM with 256MB RAM, and after installing fine it just hangs after loading the Linux Kernel. This was a problem a few months ago, I was hoping it had been fixed by now.

    From this note:

    How to Install the Ubuntu 686 Kernel

    1.) boot to the Ubuntu 6.06 server install cd. Type "rescue" at the boot menu

    2.) when you get to the Rescue Operations screen choose "execute a shell in /dev/discs/disco/part1", this option may read a little differently on your system.

    3.) Click continue if another screen appears.

    4.) At the prompt, type: sudo apt-get install linux-686

    5.) You will be asked if you want to continue, type: y

    6.) The installation of the 686 kernel will begin. It looks like an internet connection is required so the install files can be downloaded from the ubuntu website.

    7.) When the installation is done, type: exit

    8.) You should be returned to the Rescue Operations screen. Choose the last option: reboot the system. Make sure you're not booting to the install cd!

    9.) Give the system a few moments to boot-up. At last, you should be placed at the login: prompt.

    10.) Celebrate!
