You'll have to provide a little more information, joanr.
Are you attempting to install from a CD?
Did you download / burn the CD yourself?
What exactly happens when you attempt an install?
The more info you provide the more likely someone will be able to help you out.
Take a look at THIS when you get a chance.

regards
mac

Hello, thanks for your answer

I tried to install last week, from an usb pendrive.
I don't remember exactly, but I remember that pepper two 64bits did not boot on my aspire5250, it hangs during boot ...
I like pepper2, I installed it (32 bits version) on my asus eeepc without problems

Thanks

joanr,
So, you're not actually getting to the install process but unable to boot from usb at all (live mode)? If that's correct, try these one at a time.....

verify md5sum----to do that look here: http://peppermintos.com/guide/downloading/ > "Checking the Integrity of the Image"

Hit the "ESC" at start to get into the BIOS and set to boot usb first (I think Acer supports that .... if not, then use whatever key your machine
requires)

Edit the boot line with "nomodeset" (w/o quote marks)

Question: At what point does the boot attempt hang on you? What's the last thing it does successfully?

regards
mac

I have installed it with succes !!
I don't understand why it failed first time

Now I have another problem: peppermint two has not a wifi driver for my aspire 5250 ?!
Info from Acer:
Wireless and networking WLAN:
Acer InviLink™ Nplify™ 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™
Supporting Acer SignalUp™ wireless technology
LAN: Fast Ethernet, Wake-on-LAN ready

Any idea ?
Thanks

joanr
run the following in your terminal (separately) and post the results (use pastebin.com if you can)
inxi -F
lsmod
iwconfig

Did you run the Additional Drivers utility (menu > System Tools > Additional Drivers)?

Atheros AR9485 is problematic in Linux. You can use backports for a generic driver that appears to work, though. Search in Synaptic for "backports" and install the "Backported wireless drivers for generic kernel image." Reboot and see.

Good question but I'm afraid I have no answer for you. There are several posts concerning Ath9k cards on the Ubuntu forums. You might want to look over there, too.

edit: upgraded kernel = upgraded drivers
