Good Afternoon, I am trying to get linux on my acer chomebook. It gets about 2/3rds in and I have gotten several errors. I went to components but no cros-termia. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Ain't done it myself, but Linux on Chromebook is not so simple as just installing from a USB drive. What method(s) are you using? What are your Chromebook's specs? What errors are you getting?

Chromebooks are notoriously annoying to install Linux due in the main to chrome specific drivers, it can be done
