I've tried a lot of ways to boot with the Live CD - but I can't.
I thought it was my motherboard, nForce 4 a chipset that has tons of problems, but works like a charm if you don't get these problems. But it was the graphics card, Nvidia 6600 GT. For some reason the "out of the box" driver called in Xorg.conf does not support this card (and a few other nVidia and a bunch of ATI cards)
Ubuntu gives the choice of an alternate install CD. So I've installed Edgy, booted in recovery mode and edited xorg.conf so that I've changed the line 'Device "nv" ' to 'Device "vesa" ' and alas it is possible to reach the desktop but with horrible graphics performance. Then it is easy to install the nVidia driver with "envy".
This is as far as I can find out not possible with the live CD.
I thought of editing the ISO but realised that the xorg.conf most likely is generated dynamicaly.
Does an alternate install CD exist for Bianca?
Is it possible to force the use of the vesa driver in the options using "F6" with the live CD?
Any other solution?
