250GB Samsung SATA
nVidia 8500gt 512MB
3Com NIC (dhcp client - no dhcp server)
LG L1740PQ monitor
LMCE 0710 Beta 4
I'm trying to perform a basic LMCE installation. Firstly I used the 0704 DVD, and only managed to set the basic UI (UI1) because the system didn't seem to properly recognize neither the video board nor the monitor. Every time I tried to change the screen resolution the system froze just before entering the AVWizard (the monitor entered in "power saving" mode), and I had to manually reboot the system. After rebooting LCME displayed only the basic UI. This process was repeated several times.
Then I decided to install using the 2 CDs. I successfuly installed Kubuntu 7.10, activated the proprietary nVidia driver (NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (latest cards)) and set the 1024x768 resolution. After using Kubuntu for a few days without any problem, I decided to install LCME over it (I chose the UI2 when prompted). The installation process ran smoothly but, after rebooting, I noticed that somehow it had selected a 1400x1050 resolution and froze at "Activating Orbiters". I selected "Change resolution" in the Video tab, the system rebooted and... BOOOMM! - the same problem as above.
Now I've reinstalled Kubuntu and am waiting anxiously for a light in the dark...
Thanks in advance for any help,
