Live CD starts but then cannot show anything on the screen when it should start asking config questions
Teh same happens when on the docking station when a wide screen monitor is connected. There is no problem on the docking station with a 1280x1024 size monitor
This problem wasn't there with the RC
I can confirm it.
The screen of my laptop turns off and the keyboard seems to not function, so I can't install mageia 2 using the liveCD.
RC version worked perfectly. Tested on both 32 and 64 bits.
strange, and your graphic card is ?
mageia, sysadmin-bugs, tmbComponent:
Release (media or process)Target Milestone:
I have two PC's with Intel graphic cards.
Same problem here, GPU is
[root@localhost ~]# lspci | grep -i disp
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (secondary) (rev 0c)
Last line i see at normal boot:
using '/etc/ld.so.conf.d/GL/standard.conf to provide gl_conf'
then the screen goes black and i can only reboot with sysreq b
Booting works if boot into runlevel 3, start drakx11, test screen and then change to runlevel 5
After some further testing i found another workaround:
add xdriver=vesa to kernel command and it boots to gui directly
Yes, using workaround in comment 6 allows me to load the live cd. After installing I can use the intel driver perfectly.
Don't you think this bug should appear in the Errata? Here you can see another affected user: http://linuxblog.darkduck.com/2012/06/mageia-2-kde-first-glance.html . See the first paragraph of section "First boot"
The text in the Errata could be something like:
LiveCDs may not boot when using an intel graphic card. To workaround it add xdriver=vesa to kernel command and the system will boot. Once installed you can use the intel driver without any problem.
No, it boots correctly if the connected monitor has a ratio of 1280x1024
It also happens with Mageia 3 alfa 2
I am going to increase severity
It's still valid for me with Mga 3a3.
IMHO the problem is that there are two modules missing in initrd:
I've created a modified initrd with the modules above added and it boots to RL5 direcly with the intel driver (at least on my machine, ymmv).
Could someone create a live CD with his patch included. I would be glad to test.
This seems fixed with mageia 3 beta 1. I have been able to boot the 5 times I tried.
Yes, fixed for me too with 3 beta 1
seems to work here too with mga3 b1.
So I will close it as solved.
