mini edition 3.3b freeze after text install [Solved]

Post by BRVF » Wed Oct 24, 2007 11:15

Hi.

I have repeatedly tried to install or run the Live version or sabayon from the mini edition 3.3b iso.
my laptop will freeze when trying to run the live system. I therefore installed via the text installer, but then when the system booted up I would get a black screen after a long time of "Sabayon is booting"

I have checked my CD´s md5sum and tried setting the resolution to my laptops native res (1440x900) and used the opengl=nvidia "cheatcode"
I have also searched this forum for an answer or hints, but the standart answer seems to be "check out the cheatcodes" and I´m too much of a linux noob to figure out what I am doing wrong there.

My laptop is a Zepto Znote 6324w

14,1" WXGA+ 1440x900 - 6324W
1,50 GHz Intel® Core™2 DUO T5250 667MHZ 2MB
2048MB DDR2 667/PC5300, SODIMM, Zepto
120GB 7200rpm SATA Harddisk Samsung®
Intel pro/wireless 4965agn 300Mbit
NVIDIA®Geforce 8600M GT

965PM + ICH8-M chipset

I would hate to keep using WinXP on this machine.
thanks in advance

well, that was what i had on CD when my laptop showed up.

Just wanted to check before starting a new download (pretty slow connection here)
So much so actualy that by the time I have the 3.4 min version downloaded, a new version will probably be available =)

I tried again with a 3.4 mini edition, now it works fine with no "cheatcodes" and my nvidia card is detected perfectly.
