GMA 3600 works under Mint 14 Cinnamon Live, not installed

Postby Kruno » Wed Nov 28, 2012 9:03 pm

I have a realy strange situation.

Booted live Mint 14 Cinnamon edition on Acer Aspire One D270 (Atom N2600, GMA 3600) and X11 was working fine.

After install X11 fails with:
Fatal server error:
no screens found

Is there a way to get running xorg config from live cd? Does live cd have support for GMA 3600 and regular does not?

LM 14 Cinnamon live cd ( not a new 14.1 ISO ) use gallium llvmpipe software rendering , but after installed will use Mesa DRI rendering. see :
I don't know if 14.1 ISO will correcting your problem. I didn't have intel GMA 3600 to try.
You can try add nomodeset to force software rendering .
while booting, hold shift keys until grub option appeared . press "e" to edit.
insert line : nomodeset after quiet splash
press ctrl + x to boot

update : i read a lot of people cannot boot aspire one D270 to ubuntu 12.10 ( LM 14 parent ), but boot with software rendering to ubuntu 12.04 ( LM 13 ). see :
Sorry for my bad English , I am Indonesian.
