Hi everyone, I'm brand new here. I'm having an issue with the LiveDVD 32bit version. I can get the LiveDVD to go to the booting options just fine, but when I ask it to load the Live desktop, it will go through the motions of loading the modules and all that, and then it just goes to a black screen and nothing else. I'm able to still hear sound on the black screen, so I know it's trying to do something. It does fine until right after "Waiting for OpenGL configuration___Done", then it goes right to the black screen.
I have also tried installing in text mode, which it will install fully, but still load a black screen upon next boot. I have tried the different cheats such as noapci, sabayon opengl=ati, noaccelmanager, trying Safe Mode, just about anything I could find in the help file. I have an ATI X1650PRO 512Mb for my video card, and when the LiveDVD is trying to load, I do get a message about "ATI unknown device", so I am making an assumption that it isn't able to detect the card, though I could be wrong.
I've searched through the forum here and found things that were close to my issue, and of course the various cheats, but still don't have an idea of what I may be missing or need to do next. I'm hoping one of you ladies and gents can lend me a hand with this, as I would love to get this really nice distro up and purring along. Thanks for taking the time to read this and I look forward to and appreciate any help I can get.
Edit: I just read the post above me and apologize for not giving enough information. I did burn the ISO as slow as I could (4x), and the MD5 was correct. The rest of my hardware is pretty basic, AMD 64bit 2.0ghz processor, 1Gb of RAM, a Creative Audigy value sound card, Asus K8V Deluxe motherboard.
