I just installed 64studio 2.1 on my computer. the computer boots into 64studio but seems to get hung up on something. when I hit f2 to see the output the last thing I see is hub 5-9:1.0: 4 ports detected. It has been hanging on this for about 30 minutes. I encounter the same problem on reboot as well

Great news:) Good to see you up and running. I played around with the lenny apt-get 64studio from your other thread. It worked, I got a clean 64studio install but there's a kernel needed and lots of software to install. I finally broke it dist-upgrading to 3.0beta (hardy) The 64studio meta-package was the only error (hardy). Strange hybrid desktop lenny, 64studio, ubuntu mixture. The main test was to see if the 64studio lenny meta-package would install and work on lenny and it did, without problems. So it was time well spent. Cheers! Dave.

Change Boot Options Temporarily For An Existing Installation: The rest of the page is also interesting reading. Try these two first: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.21-1-multimedia-amd64 root=/dev/sda3 ro vga=791 acpi=off noapic Cheers! Dave.

Dave, Thanks for the tip!

What kernel parameters are you passing to the kernel at the moment? (in Grub, edit the boot item to see the parameters.) I do not play around with these at all, because all my systems run without problems, but I know Dave has lots of tricks up his sleeve Post your parameters here and we will work out something for you. Cheers, Q

I can get it to boot by

I can get it to boot by typing randon keys on the keyboard. About every tenth keystroke the boot sequence goes on to the next item. if I stop typing the computer will hang indefinitely. I noticed something about ahci controller can't do 64 bit forcing 32 bit. perhaps this is the problem.
