  1. I recently installed Ubuntu server 8.04 on virtual box only to fing I got the error

    0:6 Incorrect porcessor Kernel.

    Anyone know what to do? I have tried the recovery mode and the apt-get install linux-generic

    There seems to be a bug in the installer and the wrong kernel gets installed.

    I'm installing the system on a VirtualBox at the moment and have encountered the same problem.

    The solution is to reboot the VM from the installer iso image.
    Select the "Rescue a broken system" option.
    Go through the configuration options until you get to "Run a command from shell"
    When you open the shell enter the following command without the quotes and press return:
    "apt-get install linux-generic"
    This will install the generic kernel.
    Afterwards reboot the VM and select the generic kernel in the boot loader.
