Installation issues / Re: 8.10 Hybrid Core

Depending on the installer, it might never finish, as there was a bug in one of the installers. (4).

I used installer 4.  Is it possible to download the new installer package and run it or will I need a fresh Kubuntu install?  I assume it's too complicated to undo the distribution upgrade.  I should have ghosted my machine before running the installer.  One of these days I'll learn.

Are you sure it's done when you see the black screen with the mouse pointer?

When I install 8.10 it stays like that for quite a long time, I always get tired of waiting and just leave it there with the speakers on. Then suddenly the screen changes and I hear "When you can see and hear me..."

How long is quite a long time, you think?  I've left it for at least an hour, even overnight once if I recall correctly.  I had assumed it was generating the orbiter and left it for a long while.  If I invoke the AVWizard again, should I be able to count on the configuration (what is the name of that application?) to start eventually?  How long do you think it would take to come up for a 1080p hybrid core?

I'm not against starting it all over again to make sure I haven't personally screwed something up but I need to know when I should know something is legitimately wrong.

I didn't have any trouble with the 7.10 configuration finishing but afterward I noticed my SATA DVD device didn't exist (odd because that was how I installed the system).  I decided to give 8.10 a shot and here I am :)

Hi castlec,

8.10 runs fine as core hybrid.  If you have a black screen on startup you should look at this link.


Thanks for the pointer pigdog.  I had already read through that and unfortunately, it's not an issue with the output.  I can bring the AVWizard up and configure everything just fine.  Sound works, video works but when is executed, xfwm4 is brought up and all I get is a mouse pointer.  The mouse pointer is active and usable.  If I go log into a vterm and direct X to that display I can run applications.  No applications are being started after the window manager comes up.

For those interested, here are my basic hardware specs:
M3A78-EM.... 780G chipset
Phenom II X4 940
8 GB ram

Hardware not yet added
Second NIC

I'm going to probably head out and buy my second NIC tonight as I'm wondering if that could somehow cause the issue I'm experiencing.  I've already been told I would have to re-install afterward so I was waiting for the HVR drivers to be released before I bothered with it.  I'm doing my tinkering now to get the process down so that I get it all in one clean and fresh install

I was just wondering if anyone has been able to successfully install/run a hybrid core based on the current alpha.  I believe I have an issue with the window manager configuration as no X applications are starting up.  If anyone has any experiences, please share.
