I have a big problem with the video chipset in question: when I start the livecd to begin the installation, I have the first selection screen and then when I choose whatever options videos (I tried everything) I have the first screen “Initializing kernel” and then a black screen with the flashing cursor on the left and nothing more.
The livecd boot normally and then continues to happen on the XFCE desktop but can not do anything at all.
I looked at the options of the kernel (Kernel 3.8.3 Calculate) and the module is in place I even remade a livecd including the specific driver: x11-drivers/xf86-video-ast but still nothing.
Have you any idea?
For the moment when the machine is running on Opensuse 11.2 without problem.
