Thread: LiveCD booting and Graphics Interface Problem

  1. #1

    Default LiveCD booting and Graphics Interface Problem

    Hi,
    I am Ubuntu User. Eventhough I am happy with GNOME Desktop, I am using n number of KDE applications like K3B, K9Copy, etc., Because of this, while crashing OS due to power or upgrading new version, I need to download all the application again. Since, I am using GPRS - internet connection, I am loosing lot of time by doing so.
    So, I planned to switch KDE distro and felt OpenSuse is best one. So, I started give a try with OpenSuse11.1 liveCD which I got with "Linux for You" Magazine.
    While live booting, I selected 1024x768 resolution and started. But, I am not getting KDE GUI and My monitor shows "out of Range 76Hz/ ...".
    I am looking for help to solve this and continue with OpenSuse....
    With Thanks

    Did you try the default resolution the live cd detected? Give it a try and please repost the other options available also.

    It's been a while since I got this problem. Mine before was with the lcd monitor issue on a live cd. How far you can go if you try the text mode? Please try and let's see what we can do.

    Hi,
    I tried Text mode booting, It went upto
    Running sax2 to generate X configuration
    Starting system log services
    and
    Then, My monitor says "out of range"...

    Since, I could not able to proceed above, I could not able to follow the thread mentioned by caf4926...

    Please suggest ....

    Note: I am using the CD labeled as "live CD KDE4.3 +openoffice 3.1, +Firefox3.5 with openSUSE 11.1 as base, and codecs fetched from Packman. Application hand-picked by LFY team, Distribution built using SUSE studio."

    When you boot the cd, at the menu you need to edit the default boot arguments. I can't recall just where that is, use F1 for help and you should see a way to edit. Backspace everything out and just type the number 3
    At the prompt to login use: root
    No password is required, just hit enter a couple of times
    Now do this
    Code:
    sax2 -r -m 0=vesa
    Now type: startx
    you should arrive at the desktop and the live installer is there
