Re: Vedr. Re: Installing on Intel 865 - blank screen

-blank screen. Also Ctrl+Alt+F1/F7 does not work

Someone else claimed the option helped him during X problems for Intel 810/815 class cards. I never passed the parameter and instead did a text install with 'linux text' at the time. Upgrading with linux text does not prevent you from installing GUI software as some suppose by the name. It allows you to select all packages with dialog boxes in order to select the options and packages during install.


I am uncertain as to which stage you are reaching during the install attempt. Are you making it through the install up to the point where you can see the installer screen? (I made it up to selecting an upgrade and the failure was due to an exception.

Have you attempted to do a Linux text install to see if you can configure X post-install?

Also if you do get to where you install the system somewhat, there is an install log within the the /root directory for the install.log (Mine was an upgrade attempt and was zero bytes within the upgrade.log)

I filed bug below.

Also I included an attachment containing logs sent out the serial port for the installer kernel and logs which were in the /tmp directory during the install and when the exception occurred.
