Issues with Fedora Live 21

I downloaded Fedora 21 Live twice and copied it to two different USB sticks.

With all 4 combination I get the following error message when booting:

"Oh no! Something has gone wrong." hidden behind a window where I am proposed to choose between Live and Install. If I click on either, the window goes away an the error message stays.

Fedora 19 works like a charm on the machine.

Re: Issues with Fedora Live 21

How did you copy the ISO images to the USB flash drive? I had problems too until I read that unetbootin can't be used.

If you are in Fedora, create Fedora usb-live-sticks with liveusb-creator.
sudo yum install liveusb-creator

Re: Issues with Fedora Live 21

This is even worse. Now I only get a black screen.

Ctrl+Alt+F2 switched fine to a console with a login invite

Re: Issues with Fedora Live 21

You have had a download error. Please follow the steps below
If you have linux already installed, perform the following
install wget if it is not installed. It is a download program.

I use a Fedora remix A remix includes a full Fedora21. Choose what you select from Fedora plus some other great to have software.

wget -c http://mirror.yandex.ru/fedora/russi...-x86_64-21.iso
A live workstation version with extra goodies to save you time and work.

wget -c http://mirror.yandex.ru/fedora/russi...86_64-CHECKSUM

A checksum file. You run the sha256sum checksum as
sha256sum *iso
The checksum should match

There is also a net install for Fedora 21 Remix ... Here is that link

wget -c http://mirror.yandex.ru/fedora/russi...-x86_64-21.iso I use it every third day

There is also a great Fedora 21 remix called chapeau (www.chapeaulinux.org) I use it every third day

And I use opensuse13.2 for every third day. I like all three distributions.

You do not see Ubuntu in the list. Somehow Ubuntu, a very good distribution did not match my preferences.

Learn with Fedora21. Its great.

Re: Issues with Fedora Live 21

Not having access to a Linux boot anymore, I downloaded the ISO again on my Windows laptop, tried to use live usb-creator and got nasty errors. Then used LinuxLive and ....

Still the same error message "Oh no! Something has gone wrong."

So I guess this means no Fedora 21 for my computer. I'll try another distro.

Re: Issues with Fedora Live 21

Ok. It is a "black screen" bug again, it sounds like it. "Oh no! Something has gone wrong." comes when Gnome cannot start when it somehow doesn't get access to mouse and keyboard. With LIVE it doesn't go to gdm-login screen I guess, when the bug manifests itself as just a "black screen".

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1198915

Tieum: do you have nVidia graphics card?

Try Fedora LXDE spin LIVE. It probably works.

http://spins.fedoraproject.org/lxde/

I even prefer to use LXDE on my laptop which has "just" 4 GB RAM. Every efficiently used byte counts.

Re: Issues with Fedora Live 21

I do have a NVIDIA card and an Intel Chip. When starting the LiveUSB I force the Intel chip in the BIOS. I I force the NVIDIA card in the BIOS I do not see the error message, I get a screen foul of color dots.

Is there A Cinnamon spin?
