Live system hangs on boot.

Basically problem is with Nvidia driver which are activated automatically at boot, though by default vesafg driver suppose to be used per grub.cfg file. How ca I fix it? How can I get Nouveau driver loaded on boot?

Boot the LiveDVD and, when you reach the menu, press F5 and append the following boot parameter to the end of the kernel boot line:

Code: Select all
xdriver=nouveau

If that doesn't work, try:

Code: Select all
xdriver=vesa

which should at least get you to a working desktop, and from there you can install the nouveau driver as per: Re: I need to switch to Nouveau.
