Intrepid Alpha 6 Install Fails at kdm or gdm
I have tried the LiveCD for both Kubuntu and Ubuntu. Upon selecting the run without installing option, the installer goes through all steps, and properly displays, until some point. That point seems to be around where kdm, or gdm, is started. The screen blanks, a flashing cursor appears in the upper left - briefly. Then the screen goes completely blank, the CD drive settles and stops. No keys or key combinations produce any response. The power button, when pressed for several seconds does turn the machine off.
I have burned several CDs of both Kubuntu and Ubuntu. I have at times selected F4 - safe video mode, and F6 acpi=off, noapic, removed quiet, and removed splash. Aside from the specific expected display responses early in the boot process, all result in the same condition.
Since the boot process never completes, there are logs that I can retrieve.
I have not tried to install to my hard drive, as I have no extra drive and I do have a very stable and useful Kubuntu 8.04 currently on my hard drive.
I have attached the only other thing I can think of, and that is a text file containing the output of "lshw" to show my hardware platform. My guess is that Alpha 6 does not recognize my laptop's Savage video.
