Has anyone done this successfully? If I do alive hi-res boot I get a beautiful hi-res desktop with invisible mouse cursor. Mouse cursor is visible in vga safe mode. When I try to install from either desktop the installation stops after asking about downloading updates and proprietary drivers. Just stops. Not frozen...desktop is still interactive, the installation app just stops. I am using an Nvidia GTX 1070.

Help!



A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

Try installing the nvidia drivers; safe mode will always show the cursor, but you won't get optimum results without those drivers. Search these forums, our very own Jeff has informed another user how to do it properly. The procedure should be similar; it's been done this way since the 1.0 release, if I recall correctly.

Can't install nvidia drivers until I get Bodhi installed which I can't since the installation app stalls after asking if I want to download updates while installing.

 

I verified the downloaded Bodhi Live .iso.  It is valid.

 

Thanks for the replies.

Did you opt for the updates and extra stuff or not?

 

After that step it is doing a check on your drives/partitions and looks for other OS's. Which in some cases may take a while, even on a fast system like yours.

 

Enjoy,

There is also the option of installing Bodhi first, then getting the updates afterwards. I've done this on some other laptop that I had before, with another OS that I eventually got rid of.When BL 4.1 came out, the entire HDD was wiped with gparted, and the install was a breeze--there was no partition to resize or preserve.

Well, thanks for the help but I finally gave up after nothing I tried worked. I finally installed Xubuntu 16.04 and the installed Bodhi packages as an alternative desktop at login. Beautiful.

Almost perfect is good enough; congratulations on figuring a way out of that hole, while still getting your choice of desktop :)

So now my burning question to ask back - is that Ryzen blazing fast? 

 

I quasi-recently upgraded from an AMD X4 to a budget Xeon and could not believe how "instant" things are... I don't game so I have been intrigued by the Ryzen...supposed to pack a nice little 8 core punch :)
