    I knew that I had made the right decision by taking a vow of abstinence from using Nvidia proprietary drivers.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    I made the same decision 3 cycles ago - since then nouveau had gotten worse for me - had to move back.

    However, livesession uses whatever it uses to boot, that'll not be nvidia - CanGraphical=no

    Would be good to see other people trying the livesession - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...m/+bug/1366206

    I've tried Xubuntu, Ubuntu and Lubuntu.

    I've only got intel and ATI hardware - workaround to get at least something working is to add
    nomodeset
    to the boot command line that starts with
    linux
    This gets me up with crippled resolution, 1024x768, so I can do at least something.

    I don't know how to try this when booting the .iso

    Appears to be a vbox issue (for me) clean install to hardware doesn't show the same thing.
