    Kubuntu hardy amd64 won't boot

    Hi!

    Tried to install the amd64 version of Kubuntu today and at first I was happy because the usplash bug with my graphics card seems now to be fixed.

    The installation finished without any error messages so I tried to boot Kubuntu.
    After the splash screen the screen went black and I wasn't able to do anything.

    So I tried to boot in safe mode.
    Everything seems to load fine because of the [ OK ] at the end but after the loading finished (the point where normally the splash screen disappears) I got the following messages:

    EXT3-fs error (device loop0): etx3_find_entry: reading directory #734425 offset 0
    stat: cannot stat '/usr/bin/screen': No such file or directory
    (bunch of 'No such file or directory' errors here)
    followed by a blinking cursor and I wasn't able to do anything again.

    I tried it with wubi 455 and 479B. (both with the latest image)

    I think I'll stick with the x86 version a little longer



    A little 'problem' I also have is that the installer always sets a wrong system time for me.
    I live in the CET timezone (UTC+1 standard time / UTC+2 during daylight saving).
    But this has most likely nothing to do with wubi.

    *bump*
    Sorry for double posting but any ideas?

    I'd really like to install the 64bit version of kubuntu because I plan to run a 64bit guest os in virtualbox.

    There are only 16 days left to final state and it totally stopped working.
    (older versions used to work but with graphics problems)

    screen should be there it might be that the ISO is in an inconsistent state at the moment. Try with the beta ISO.
