I'm glad you found the install relatively easy. You don't mention what video
card your using. If you happen to be using any of the various video card
did you leave all the boxes checked when you chose a card in setup? If not,
especially using an Nvidia card, this would have left out a needed package.
And like some had just said, it may very well be a problem with rhgb even
though I have never experienced this. Version 1.4 will be out soon and rhgb
will be removed from bootup in this version.
