Hello all. New to the forums and trying to get this working. After the installation (tried 64bit and 32bit) will get to end. Tells me to remove cd and reboot. Which goes through fine. After it inits for the first time and installs video drivers, sets up lan. It will get a black screen. If i type something in and press enter I wll get a quick flash of a login screen. The login says
(something samba daemon on top)
Ubuntu 7.10 dcerouter ttyl
This is all in a split second on the screen, used a high speed camera to capture a picture of it. Is there something that I am missing or not installing correctly??

Hi there and welcome!
When you first install LinuxMCE (or if you want to reconfigure a screen in some way) the AVwizard runs. The Avwizard will always output to VGA @ 640x480 by default... you can use some hot keys on the keyboard to configure the output and the resolution before the AVwizard starts... your systems is sitting there waiting for you to do that ;-)
See this Wiki page for all the details of the Hot Keys and also an explanantion of what the AVwizard does... its worth reading.http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/AVWizard#What_to_do_if_A.2FV_Wizard_does_not_start
All the best
