B0.34 64-bit on real hardware (Intel):
First test installed from burned CD.
Second test installed from USB stick made with unetbootin.
On both, install was fine.
First reboot garbage splash but working system.
Second reboot pretty splash but no X. Error messages indicated attempted use of vesa driver and "no screens found".
Edited /boot/grub/grub.conf, removed the "quiet" and "splash" options and got plain text console boot (the way I like it
), then GDM and a working system.
On install from USB stick, edited grub.cfg to point to correct root filesystem. Since SATA drive designations are liable to change when people insert or remove USB sticks, we should use UUID instead of hardcoding /dev/sdxx into grub configuration.
When enabling boot splash, it continues to run on tty1 the whole time. Don't think it should.
