I downloaded the lastest version of kubuntu (10.04). When i try to install i can switch to my langauge and change the keyboard layout. After thi i click on "install". there appears the splash screen for about 2 minutes then i always get a blackscreen.

What am i doing wrong?

My Hardware:
CPU : AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
Graphics Card: AMD/ATI Asus HD 5770
Mainboard: Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H

Have you tried the "alternate installer"? It has no gui, but rather an ascii based interface.

Your problem doesn't have many clues, so that's what I'd try.

No i didn't try the alternate installer. I'll try it when i am back at home.

Could it be that there is an issue with the opensource driver for my graphics card?
If yes is there a possibility to use the propertiary driver instead of the opensource?

I doubt that's the problem, but you never know. I had a similar issue when I installed 10.04. I never figured out what I did to solve it. I just tried it a few times and eventually it worked.

any further suggestion if it doesn't work after several tries?
