I have an EPIA 800 AG motherboard with Via C3 processor and integrated graphics. I was previously running Ubuntu 6.06 on this machine. Aside from having to specify "vga=791" on the boot line, everything worked fine.
I decided to reinstall this system with Ubuntu 8.04. I got the alternate install CD because of the Via processor. The installation process worked, again providing a vga=791 code.
However, after the system is installed and started to boot up, it reaches the point of "Loading Hardware Drivers". The screen gets a greenish tint before it seems like something hangs or at least stops sending a signal to the monitor. I don't seem to be able to do anything further at this point. I was initially installing xubuntu but when that hung, I did the cli only version instead with the same hanging results.
Has anyone seen similar issues or have suggestions on how to best trouble shoot this issue other than trying to switch to another distribution?
