Something's wrong for me, with Standard Live.
All I get after the kdm login is a blue background and an empty panel.
No right-click menu, no icons, no wallpaper. The only thing that seems to be on the panel is the mount applet, but with no icon.
Tried both autoprobe, vesa, and probe for video, and exactly the same.
Checked xorg.conf, nv driver was rightly picked, and everything else seemed fine.
Downloaded again, checked md5sum, asked k3b to verify data, and still the same problem.....
what a pity... I was eager to show this around.
I'll try it on another computer at some point.
