Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

The desktop CD boots just fine.

Install went fine.

Reboot died after some usplash messages re failing to initialise various resolutions.

Fix was to boot into rescue disk, mount the root drive and rename /etc/X11/xorg.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf,bak

After that a reboot worked fine.

Ran into a similar problem with the beta just before RC came out. Now the RC CD will not boot so I cannot troubleshoot.
