Hi...

Does using the "noapic" or "acpi=off" parameter at boot resolve this? I'm not sure how you would set this in PCLinuxOS.

Regards...

Smile PCLinuxOS Full Monty install Fails[Solved]

Discovered that after I log in as guest/guest, I must enter "startx." Install proceeded to end with no more difficulty. Discovered this after a long search of forum messages. Never saw this discussed anywhere in the primary installation discussions.

Hi....

I'm glad you got it installed but normally, as you may know, a distribution will start up automatically, even in live mode. It's been a long time since distributions of Linux required the "startx" command at boot!

If you would, please mark this thread as "SOLVED" by clicking on "Thread Tools" directly above your initial post. Thanks!

Regards...
