I'm trying Fedora 12 KDE live CD on my new laptop. After the first menu screen becomes blank and never shows anything even after waiting for 10 min. I waited till i was hearing CD rotating sound. CD is brand new and image checksum are matching. My laptop is brand new with latest Intel i3 processor with Intel HD Audio and Video.
I managed to boot the KUbuntu live CD in safe mode graphics. Any suggestion how do I boot with Live CD of FC12?
I've taken a lspci dump in KUbuntu live CD as most of the hardware was not supported by KUbuntu.

Good thing I looked in this section first. I was about to post the same issue.

Recently purchased an Asus u50f laptop. I tried booting Fedora 12 x64 and the Kde version as well; both with the same issue.

I tried the latest Ubuntu alpha version to test, and it works fine.

It uses an Intel HD HM55.

Anyone have any ideas?

I815 thanks for your post and your post is a good news for me. Cause I'm sick of running Windows 7 on this laptop. I always had a plan to run Linux on this laptop just went and got this one with Windows 7 because it was at subsidized rate as compared to pre-installed Linux laptops.
I'll now download an alpha kubuntu and give a try. If sound and video works then viola! Also I'm gonna give a try with Arch linux since its rolling distro and may get Intel video/audio drivers first.

Same problem here on what looks like the same computer!

I successfully installed Fedora 64 using the light graphical installer, though I never did get the LiveCD to work.

It does not recognize the wireless card, but it works ok otherwise. Bluetooth and wired are fine.

I booted with KUbuntu lucid alpha 3 live CD and to my surprise display was detected to 1366x768 the wireless card was not detected but when I scanned for new hardware I did find my broadcom card and I installed driver software which was installed directly from live CD [ Broadcom Corporation Device 4357 ]
Also when I booted I heard the Kubuntu login sound... :) Sound card is also working. However installation script was crashing :)) so i did not managed install KUbuntu.

The Good news is KUbuntu 10.4 will have support for our hardware out of the box.
I'm sure on the same line Fedora 13 will have the support for Intel HD audio/video and broadcom wireless.

Good news :D I'm going to try that tonight.

EDIT: Could you provide a link for the download you used?

After installing F12, you'll need to do this firstsu -
yum update --enablerepo=u*g
reboot

I am running F13 and can use a LiveUSB stick with F13 also on this system. I have an ASUS P7H55-M Pro motherboard and an Intel i5 660 processor, using the Intel HD video solution. Works great.

How is f13 right now? I was thinking of going over but I fear it may be too unstable for daily usage.

Sure! Right on the Fedora Project download page, the x86_64 install DVD.
http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/12/Fedora/x86_64/iso/Fedora-12-x86_64-DVD.iso

_Still_ can't get the wireless to show up, though.

F13 is still being worked on and has a long way ahead prior to being finished. It's safer to stick to F12 while following the instructions in #7
Y'all have been warned. :cool:

Seems to be the same iso I used. It installed for me, but at the end of the user creation it freezes, and I have to do a hard shutdown :(

Weird! I think I actually downloaded the bittorrent version of the same iso. Did you do a checksum for the download and verify the cd during the installation process?

Out of curiosity, which installation method did you use?

l815
5th March 2010, 09:24 PM
The checksum was done and it was fine. The install method was the second option, which states something like "do an install using basic video drivers".

I also tried F13 for comparison, and X launched this time, except it freezes before showing the login screen. So I just see the mouse pointer and the default background.

I'd keep trying, but I don't like the sound of my hard drive clanking every time I have to do a hard shutdown :(

Worked like a charm here.

I have an ASUS-P7H55-M Pro motherboard and an Intel i5 660 processor.


What I am still working on is updating the driver to a more suitable one.

Nokia what is the actual driver for the Intel embedded video please?

The link I used was from this page

http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/releases/lucid/alpha-3/

and I downloaded the following file:
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/releases/lucid/alpha-3/lucid-desktop-amd64.iso

But like someone pointed on this thread... KUbuntu lucid and fedora 13 both are unstable at this moment so be careful. Like I could not install KUbuntu... the installation script was crashing all the time and could not do anything if i select install menu directly at the boot time.

The clanking is indeed a horrible sound. Hopefully you will have more luck with another distro! :D
