Hi,
tried installation of aptosid-2011-02-imera-xfce-amd64-201107131632.iso on Lenovo S205 (AMD Radeon HD 6310 graphics).
After the boot menu X is started but i only see snow on the screen (mouse pointer is visible as a big rectangle when moved).
So it is not possible to use the live system or install it.

Possible to use some boot flags for the kernel?

Regards,
Roland

radeon.modeset=0 xmodule=vesa as bootcheats should work.
After installing you propably need fglrx, since radeon does not work propper for HD6xxx graphics cards.

I have the same problem in one of my computers but this time not with radeon but with nvidia 9400. How can i use vesa for the installation screen? I cant even see the mouse is messed up the first screen. Im using the aptosid imera kde-full version.

HD6310 on the very same Lenovo Ideapad S205 does work ok here - no boot cheat needed. No Release bug, moved to "Hardware" section.
Greetings,
Chris
