What happens when you press Ctrl-Alt-Backspace? You may get a screen that looks like a terminal. Then, type "xorgwizard" without the quotation marks at the #prompt, selected the appropriate screen resolution. Then, type "xwin" without quotations at the # prompt.

G'day gosom,

It is happening with a few systems and very recent Pups.

Read through the link and its following posts:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=82092&start=108

You could try some of the fix suggestions or wait for more analyses of the problem(s) for a certain fix.

Older Pups are worth trying if you want something running on your computer more quickly.

Nothing..the computer just freezes.

I have tried all the suggested solutions

This also happens in debian testing, ubuntu, lubuntu newset slackware.

I am sure it has to do with GMA 3600 intel and specific kernels.


How I can disable all modules during boot?

puppy nomodeset ?
