14.04 install story ( close)
« on: March 02, 2015, 04:38:36 pm »
Hey guys, 

I do not expect much support on this version. Purpose is to help out dev. I tried to install 14.04 and DVD install snapshot 21Feb 2015.

Kubuntu install went fine but the system just reboots now. It never gave me AV wizard.
The monitor was conneced via VGA to the graphic Card. Nvidia Geforce GT430.

currently I am using a live image to provide some logs. I am not sure which logs would help but attaching some here. Let me know what to do from here.

Thanks.

Never mind. I when with fresh install again. This time tried 12.04 however that is also failed on me.

This time its AV wizard failed to set up X and I can't do anything. Searched on forum ...there are many posts but did not find any particular solution.:(

Which snapshot did you use and what video card do you have?

for 12.04 , I went with internet install.
I installed kubuntu 12.04 first , upgraded and then went with install script just like mentioned on wiki.

I had seen AV wizard once where It asked me to pick hdmi resolution and refresh rate but never went to next screen, system rebooted and now on every boot I have "AV wizard failed to setup X"

I have Nvidia Geforce GT-430.

Try running this from the command prompt, it'll tell us what LMCE is trying to do with your video hardware:

Code: [Select]
. /usr/pluto/bin/SetupAudioVideo.sh; CheckVideoDriver

(notice the space between the . and the / at the beginning.)

and you can try to manually
Code: [Select]
apt-get install nvidia-current

Check to see if an xorg.conf is created at /etc/X11/xorg.conf and verify that the Driver: setting is set to nvidia.
