Just recently successfully (I think) produced my first LiveCD and it boots up beautifully (I think!)... I get a nice Zen splash screen with all the options but following that I get the (black) screen of death
although the system continues to boot with plenty of audible and LED activity going on.
I've tried every option listed in the splash screen, and the further options given by function keys at the bottom... all with the same result.
I've tried to get a CLI by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 to F6, Ctrl+Alt+backspace, Alt+SysRq+E... just nothing. The good news is that I get a mouse
on this black screen which can move about!!
Now clearly it's got to be something to do with video drivers, so my question is:
If I've tried everything to get to a CLI to change the video driver and nothing more can be done, how can I produce another version of the remaster that will pick up the right drivers to put into the iso that will work on completion?
I've sort of been here before... my first foray into Linux had this problem with various LiveCD's of various distro's, but selecting the VESA option always did the trick, I could then change the video driver after that (in my case NVidia's Nouveau). It's a GeForce2-MX400 btw.
Thanks for any advice.
