View Full Version : Live CD keeps crashing

March 5th, 2010, 01:12 PM
Not sure if its the correct place.

I have downloaded the 10.04 iso and burnt it to disc at low speed.
When i load it up on my laptop it is okay for around 1-2 minutes then crashes with a funky coloured square at the top left hand corner.

Any know had this error?

What type of Graphics Card do you have?

On the manufactures webpage it has a ati radeon/firegl.

Just to let you know your not alone. I read your problem, and it may be related to Plymouth. I don't have an ATI video.

A couple of things to try. Check you home folder ".xsession-errors" & ".xsession-errors.old". See if anything there helps.

Also try looking a "/var/log".

One thing you can try is to remove plymouth and see if that helps. Also try using "nomodeset" at the end of your "linux" line.
