After successfully running the live CD and testing WiFi and other things I decided to install Ubuntu as single operating system on my Samsung X10 laptop. So far everything seemed OK, installation took a couple of hours and I completed it.
Starting the X10 from HDD with Ubuntu shows an Ubuntu screen and then an option to press s or .... but it is too fast to read. The system seems to boot but the screen remains dark after the hint. The HDD led lights up while moving the mouse cursor using touchpad but the screen still remains dark.
I can ping my PC on network, but that's about it. Help on troubleshooting from here is really appreciated. Please keep in mind that I'm very new to Ubuntu.
No newer ubuntu install possible, cos x10 does not support pae. External display via vga-port is working. Display is flagged unknown and i am not in a position to change resolution (to see the whole system settings screen) nor to choose or install drivers for annother display.
sry, i cannot answer to your comments.
