Installation issues / Issues with 0710 RC
« on: April 23, 2008, 01:20:39 pm »
The release candidate is available for download.

Please, please post any significant issues with 0710 RC so we can monitor it. Don't post here if you don't have relevant information. We're trying to find what things can stop us from releasing 0710.

Thank you

Installation issues / DVD Region
« on: January 30, 2008, 03:11:11 pm »
From time to time this happens:
user complains that the DVD drive doesn't play any disk and/or the ripping also doesn't work. I've met this few times in the past - and in 95% of case it was the unset region ID plus region-protected DVDs, which are typical for US/Canada/Europe(?)

So, here is a short article now

Installation issues / Black screen after installation is finished
« on: January 21, 2008, 11:59:20 am »
I've seen that reported few times, and because it's not an issue I post this sticky topic:

After rebooting the computer the AV wizard starts. If you don't have VGA connector (if you use DVI (or HDMI), S-video, composite, or component) you get a "Black screen". Please read the whole page (if new linuxmce user) and specially Section II.

Section II

Another method to choose the resolutions and the connector is by pressing some keyboard keys. By default, the AV Wizard has the resolution 640x480 on VGA. To choose the connector you have to press the keys from 1 to 5 (1=DVI, 2=VGA, 3=Component, 4=Composite, 5=S-Video). To choose a resolution you have to press the keys from 6 to 0 (6=640x480, 7=1024x768, 8=720p, 9=1080i, 0=1080p). For choosing the resolution and connector you have to be in the initial screen of AV Wizard.

Installation issues / DVD vs CD Installation

Cons and pros  ::)

DVD Installation
1. reduced time per installation
2. has mixed 64b and 32b diskless images

1. erases entire HDD

CD Installation
1. doesn't erase entire HDD, let you install Kubuntu an the available free space

1. take a huge amount of time
2. doesn't have mixed images for 32b or 64b (if the hybrid is 32b the MD is also 32b even if it has 64b architecture)
