I did not work with linux until now.
I want to switch to linux - win8.x and "better" - is not for me !
My new hardware is :
MB : ASRock AM1B-ITX
CPU : Athlon 5350 APU with HD 8400 graphics
Memory : BLT8G3D1608ET3LX0CEU = 8GB Crucial 1600 (Memtest = OK , old WinXP32-Prof on HDD is working)
CD/DVD : Liteon iHAS625 B
I downloaded "sparkylinux-3.3-x86_64-mate.iso" burned it on DVD and started in German-language.
Lines of info appeared , then graphics-output, then the monitor "Samsung T27C370=TV/Monitor)
went dark and displayed "NO SIGNAL ...".
Then I tried it in english = same effect.
Then I tried "SparkyLinux failsave".
Many different lines of info appeared.
Then : "error reading /lib/udev/hudb.bin : No such file or dir" appeared often.
After that :
This Debian Live image failed to boot.
Please file a bug ... ...<email@example.com>... ==> I try to do it ...
The file "/boot.log" contains ... ... sorry, I do not know where to find that file. I booted from DVD !
Unable to find a medium containing a live file system
modprobe : module ehci-orion not found in modules.dep
[ 94.864365] uhci_hcd : USB Universal Host Controller Interface driver
BusyBox v1.22.1 (Debian 1:1.22.0-4) built-in shell(ash) ...
/bin/sh : can't access tty; job control turned off
Sorry, that is all I can tell you.
Do I have to change my BIOS-Settings ?
I hope in my text there are infos to find the problem.
How about to start "SparkyLinux failsave" with option "write boot.log" to USB-Stick/USB-Floppy ?
I tried other Linux live-systems on that ASRock AM1B-ITX - none is working without Problems.
Must I wait until Kernel x.y.z or whatever software ?
What Linux should I use ?
One live-linux with internal restart/reboot worked in vga-mode (I do not remember whitch it was ?Mint?),
but BOINC did not find the graphics-unit for calculation.
Can you give me a hint ?
Thanks a lot
