Asus Eee PC 1001PX and Trisquel 5.5
I upgraded my netbook from 5.0 to 5.5 but when I restart, the pc hangs on the initial screen (where you choose the user). Any idea?
Does going to virtual terminals work? E.g. Ctrl + Alt + F1 to go to VT1. Maybe only the graphical interface (X) has a problem.
If not, do the leds react to caps lock? If nothing happens when you hit caps lock, this would indicate a kernel panic or other kernel jam.
I can not access the virtual terminal, and nothing happens when I hit caps lock.
I'm guessing it's a problem with GDM (Gnome Display Manager). You could always install a different login manager like SLiM. Does grub2 show up? if so try using recovery mode or something similar which will give you a bare bones terminal to work with. If this doesn't work you can use a live cd to chroot to your desktop. (PS: I have the same netbook and had some problems with GDM which brought me to SLiM in Parabola).
@ aloniv: I can do nothing, it's all hangs.
Now I'd like to find a step by step guide to install Trisquell again.
but I've not a cd drive (even external).
I installed the 4.5 via usb pen and the Help of someone (but I can not remember who, sorry).
can you still boot that or a similar(architecture 32bit or 64bit) usb ?
Yeah teodorescup, I can run a trisquel via FSF member card.
How can I re-install Trisquel?
I tried to install the 3.0 version from the FSF member card, but the network does not work...
I also tried to copying from the installation CD of 5.0 on a USB pen, but will not start.
