Description of problem:
While loading the operating system on a Dit computer - Duron based, I have
repeated received an error Gnome-Canvas-path-def.c Path = !null line 1142.  If I
carefully de-select Gnome based modules, I have loaded Linux and it operates.  I
still haven't gotten the sound card working. 
Suggestions on the fatal error?

The error:

   Gnome-Canvas-path-def.c Path = !null line 1142

is a warning generated by the graphical installation program and is normal.  It
is not causing any problems.

It sounds like perhaps your install media may be bad and when you try to install
GNOME the installer attempts to install packages which are corrupt. Have you run
the mediacheck?
Comment 2 Harry Burns 2002-11-14 20:31:10 EST
After trying to load twice, I checked the media.  After trying to those giant
files on the web so I could load from a hard drive (in case I had a CDrom
failure), I checked the media again with the program I downloaded.  Both say
that the media is fine.

I had a C++ programmer friend of mine suggest that it might be my video card
which happens to be built into the motherboard on this cheap computer.  I need a
system that works so that I can work on getting this all ready for our server. 
I'll add the video card in a separate message.
