Hello Steve,
I'm not sure you are the person who I should report this but since I
downloaded the .iso using the link from your e-mail I thought I should
report it to someone. ( Since this is just a beta version, I was expecting
some bugs, I'm not disappointed...I just wanted to share the info)
When I start from the cd I just burned, The startup menu shows-up and
without doing anything the language selection menu opens-up. After selecting
a Language ( or just pressing enter to select the english default language),
the start up menu appears.
After, when it try to open a live session or try to install on disk, it
freeze for a wile and then ask for reboot.
I assume it might have something to do with my configuration...I'll wait for
the official release...It will probably be o.k.
I you want more details and think it could help other people ...let me know.
