Live ISO freezes at desktop


I just downloaded the new MAY ISO, whenever I start it, it just freezes as soon as it gets to the desktop, so I can’t actually install it. I tried the March ISO and it works fine, but I’d like to use the one from May. Any ideas?


When you say freezes, can you move the mouse. See if you can log into a virtual terminal. Have you given it enough time, a minute or two to show desktop.

I can access other ttys, mouse moves, but the desktop is frozen, and yes I waited.

Do this from vtty and see what happens.

openbox --restart

doesn’t seem to work ;( I just get “failed to open the display from the DISPLAY environment variable”

type this:

ps x|grep openbox

I had this issue today, to fix It go to tty2 and kill tty1’s startx process then go to tty1 again
