I’m trying to run your live 32 bit 3.5 openbox usb image on a asus eee pc 1000ha with a intel i915 graphics chip. When the live cd tries to startx it failed because no screen was detected. Here is the output of lspci -vvv from my ubuntu install.

Code: Select all

Seems to be a fairly common problem. Modify your /etc/X11/xorg.conf as follows:

Code: Select all

Section "Device"
         Driver      "vesa"
Then startx.

The install, should you try it, should use the vesa driver but just in case your real graphics card insists on inserting itself in xorg.conf, you can go in and comment out the lines for your graphics card and just use the vesa driver.
