Fedora 7 Live GUI not working on Acer Aspire 5670
 
Hi everybody.

I've been trying to use the new Fedora 7 Live KDE thing on my Acer laptop, and it seemes to work fine until the login screen is supposed to appear.
I get a blue screen and a mouse pointer, which I am able to move, for a second and then it dissapears and puts up the command line interface.

I've tried to use the alt+Fx thing to switch to the GUI but with no luck. It only switches between CLI 'windows'.

Early in the boot I get a error reading 'Buffer I/O error in device sr0, locical block 175747' but apart from that everything seems to run fine, until the problem mentioned earlier that is.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Problem solved!
 
I found the problem!

The non-KDE Live version gave me and error after the GUI started up and shut down a couple of times, saying that 'something bad' was happening to the graphics driver.

Then I realized that, by habit, I was using an external LCD monitor (Acer AL1916) plugged into my Laptop, and this monitor was superseding the laptop monitor.

Fedora is apparently quite unwilling to deal with this so I unplugged the monitor and tried again, choosing to run the system of the RAM rather of the CD image.

And now, I'm writing this on my laptop, using Fedora Core 7 Live!
