Beta 2 Installation issues [SOLVED]
« on: December 18, 2009, 09:33:22 pm »
All,

Sorry for adding another problem, but I'm having a problem getting Beta 2 installed, and I'm now on my 4th or 5th installation via the internet install.  I believe the installation is complete, but the AVWizard doesn't come, instead the screen turns white and just sits there. I don't have the logs from my last "aptitude dist-upgrade" in front of me, but what from what I can remember it appears to have something to do with the following packages. I noticed a problem with these files.

libvdpau1
nvidia-glx-180
libxine1

I know this is very vague, but I'm hoping someone has seen the same thing and can shed some light on the matter.

make sure you have the avenard repo in sources.list

run dkms status at a terminal

make sure it says nvidia, 195.22, 2.6.27-16-generic, i686: installed

if not install the 195 nvidia drivers

#sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-195

then run nvidia-xconfig and reboot

Thanks for the help Tim, your recommendations saved me from another install.  The only problem I'm noticing now is that I have no sound on either my Core or my Diskless MD. Not sure if it's an issue with the alsa driver, but I'm going to re-install it and see if that helps.  Let me know if you have any suggestions.

Thanks,

Ernesto
