I am unable to do a live boot and install Linux Mint 5 Beta 32 on VmWare Workstation 6. The same problem occurs using Virtual Box 1.6.
It boots, see the splash screen, then on the Live desktop, I see this error message below (included as an attachment as well).
"There was an error starting the GNOME Settings Deamon. Some things, such as themes, sounds, or background settings may not work correctly. The last error message was: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply. The message bus security policy blocked the reply. the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken. GNOME will still try to restart the Settings Deamon next time you log in."
I hit the Close button. Then, I open the Install icon from the desktop. I go through the Wizard, and on right after Step 5 (the actuall install), it freezes up.
