Re: forced to do text-based F11 install



There's nothing wrong with doing a text install. In fact it works faster. To rule out the DVD try a network graphic install but I would thing it's a Xorg issue. Anyway,  do the text install and I'm pretty sure it'll work. Before rebooting switch to another terminal and chose runlevel 5 to make sure it'll boot on a graphical user interface.

Regards
