Re: 1st pc, no GUI install, x & wifi problems (I named this one 'play2')
ISO passes md5sum check.  Don't use a separate home partition.  All personal files are kept in a separate data partition mounted as /common, with symbolic links from login directory to directories on /common.  Don't think /common was mounted during install, added to fstab 2 days later.

I currently have 7 distros installed on play2.  Good news is that after SEVERAL DAYS of playing with it (TUI boot, root login, start xfce4, start wifi, then logout, relogin as me and start xfce4 and wifi) installation seems
to be normal.  Today, booting GUI, login as me, wifi autostarts, menus work, etc.  Have done more desktop configuration, installed thunderbird, gnucash, libreoffice, did some browsing.  Only change was insuring that xfce4 was preselected session before logging in.  Did this several days ago, didn't seem to make any difference then.  Today it's GREAT and FAST :).  System seems to have healed itself.  X can still die on login but works OK if I try again.

Did you happen to choose a home partition and not format it during install on that setup that does no have a working x??

Also did you verify the md5sums of the idk image downloaded to run the install from?

Attached are the hardware list and log files from my 1st problem child install.

I did a new install on my other desktop yesterday - similar but newer hardware.  Both GUI and CLI installs worked fine, log in was normal.  But, network manager could not negotiate a connection with the network.  Have both cat 5 and wifi connections on that machine - could not get an address on either one.  Did not try disconnecting one or the other connections.

Would it be of help if I posted the hardware list for this machine and/or any of the log files?

Yes, definitely.

OK, this got hashed out. The package name for 7.1 remains "imagemagick", and it's now available.

The package name for 7.2 changes to "ImageMagick" to match the name supplied by the upstream source. For now, both "imagemagick" and "ImageMagick" are available -- other than the changes necessary to change the package's name, the packages are identical. What's expected is that 7.2 will not use the name "imagemagick" beyond this, but bear in mind it's still Alpha and subject to change.

7.1 supplied imagemagick on the install ISO. 7.2 doesn't need ImageMagick initially, so it's not on the ISO so far. That is, unless you have installed imagemagick on 7.2, "upgrade" won't and shouldn't pick this up, because there's nothing there to upgrade.

Downloaded & installed 7.2 64 a1.4.  GUI install failed when starting X with message  "Cannot display this graphics mode.  Optimum resolution 1440x900."  Tried adding several different framebuffer codes without success. Nvidia graphics. This problem has existed since at least 7.1 STD Final.  Installed using CLI OK.  Booted installed system using GUI - logged in, could not launch anything from the menu or connect to wi-fi.  Could launch programs and logout using desktop menu.  Rebooted using TUI, logged in, started xfce4, similar behavior.  Logged out, logged in as root, started xfce4, everthing OK.  Configured wi-fi, several other things, logged out as root, logged back in as me, started xfce4 as me, now things seemed normal..Repeated this process several times, no change.. System looks good and fast when I can get into it.
