Ubuntu Trying to install mythtv feisty fawn but craches after gdm start

2012-08-29  Source: Original Site  Category:Ubuntu  Views:0 


Ive been following the guide here : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MythTV_Feisty_Backend_Frontend

Everything seems to go alright until I do sudo apt-get install ubuntu-mythtv-frontend

THe files seem to install although there seems to be some lines about not being able to create some directories for fonts. Everything else seems to install fine.

I then do sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart and the hard drive seems to do something and then the screen goes into standby as though the graphics card isnt sending a signal and the keyboard lights start flashing.

I have redone the guide a couple of times but each time the same thing happens.

The setup of the box is

ATI Radeon x800
Hauppage pvr 350
HAuppage hvr 110
1 gig crucal ram
AMD 64 3000 cpu

64bit feistyfawn.

ANy help would be brilliant. I`m pulling my hair out here and havent got a clue what is causing this. Plus my family is getting really annoyed with computer parts being all over the front room
