I posted that awhile ago. I even tried again to install 7.10, going
through each release, step by step. No luck again when I got to 7.10. I
could see during the installation process that it was having a problem
opening a device a number of times.

I went back to using 6.06 and I'm happy.

Thanks for pointing out that 7.10 is not an LTS release.
