On a new computer (i.e.: HP Pavilion g7 Notebook PC/ Bios-Version F.42/ Intel Core i5-245OM/ CPU 2,50 GHz/ 6 GB Mem./ 640 GB H.D./ Intel HD Graphics 3000/ pre-installed with Windows 7) I installed aptosid-ponos-kde-lite-i386, after having deleted all Windows-stuff.

The installation from USB-stick to HD was successful and lasted 2:10 min. only, but after starting the computer from HD the screen goes black after:

waiting for /dev to be fully populated ...

Thanks in advance for any help.

Greetings,
Jorg

remove "quiet" from the kernel cmdline and wait up to ~10 minutes, eventually it hits some timeout and manages to boot in the end, the logs (dmesg) will then reveal what's interfering.

Thank you, slh, for your hints, but unfortunately they did not help. After a new install with kde-full-amd64(!!) it works.

Greetings,
Jorg
