I'm trying to boot with the live discs I downloaded today (I tried both the CD and DVD), and the desktop just won't load: it gets to the end of the boot-up scripts, but the screen just goes black. Every 5 seconds or so, the screen quickly flashes and I can make out a console window, but it goes back to black.
It's on a system that has been running Gloria for a while...I decided this weekend to upgrade to the RC, but today I saw the final version was released, so I downloaded that and am trying to upgrade (via a clean install). I know the discs I burned are working ok...I'm typing this from a laptop booted with the livecd, and it's perfectly fine.
The specs on the system that isn't working are OK: 2 GB RAM, Sempron 3100+, GeForce 6600 (...and, like I said, it's been running Gloria almost since the time that was released).
Any ideas? I want to upgrade!!!!!!!
