I'm trying to recycle some old hardware for web-surfing via my TV ... As the ordinary kubuntu-live-cd runs really slow, I wanted to switch to lubuntu 11-04.
Running the lubuntu-CD, I get a live session. But starting the web browser cromium or the installer, it takes ages and then after about 10 minutes the screensaver (a bunch of glas fibers) kicks in ... no other window came up.
If I try the direct install from the boot menu, I'm stuck with a mouse pointer on an absolutely empty blue screen. It flickers white about once a second ... it's like a police cars alarm lights.
By accident I scrolled the mousewheel and it cycles between 4 virtual desktops. On rightclick there is a menu, where I can get a terminal and a webbrowser. But how do I start the install from there?
As long as the LXTerminal 0.1.9 is loading from the CD, the white flashes slow down significantly ...
Starting the webbrowser shows a full-screen window with one tab. But the mouse is frozen and I cannot go on from there.
Finally a sidenote: My TV-Set is very choosy about graphics modes. Often it complains about "unsupported mode". Therefore I had to run the CD-selftest and the RAM-Check with an ordinary monitor. It would be great to restrict these basic functionalities to very basic video modes.
