Live CD won't start the GUI
July 04, 2008 07:15PM
Hi,

I downloaded the ISO image some days ago. I have got the problem that on the first try I just got a dark screen with a prompt.

I have choosen the new NVidia graphics driver and after this the old NVidia 3D driver same result.
After this I tried the driver without 3d option and just got a console.

My hardware is an Athlon 64 3000x with 3Gb RAM and an Leadtek 8800 graphic card.

Please help me.

Markus

Did you use Elive Gem? If you don't use the supposed nvidia-drivers can you startx then?
If that is the case you could try to install
a driver as explained in:
