So here's a question to get you guys to do something like help me instead of argue
Sometimes, when I decide to try a new distro, I choose "Live mode" and whatnot. It loads and decompresses the kernel..then it goes to start and bam: rainbow pixels all over the screen. Can't see a damn thing.
Not sure if its relevant or not, but the last one I tried was a debian based distro, called Parsix.
