Description of the issue (screenshots if relevant):
OMA LX 4.3 DVD Live won’t start. After loading, it stucks on a black screen with the white mouse pointer and nothing can be done. I tried different troubleshooting options, but with no success.
To track down this issue, I tried and boot in CLI mode, logged in as root and started the X11 graphic server.
Unfortunately, also in this way X11 did not start and the following error messarges appeared:
qt.qpa.xcb: could not connect to display :0
qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin “xcb” in “” even though it was found.
Failed to create wl_display (no such file or directory)
qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin “wayland” in “” even though it was found.
This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
Could you please give me any hint to start this new version? Currently I am using the previous 4.2 version with no problem at all.
Post-edit: Project leader @bero tells us that this would not have anything to do with booting a DVD. And sure enough after I burned a DVD to test, booting with this option worked the same as booting with the default entry. Boots to black screen with mouse cursor and I have to open VT and run sudo systemctl restart sddm. @ben79 apologizes for any confusion this post may cause.
Hi, this solution works for me. I tried on different pc’s and always I got the slow black screen, all with hard disks, not ssd.
Supposing a problem on the image I tried with different downloads, but with the same results.
Quite an oddity.
Hi Ben, thank you so much for your help.
The workaround you have suggested to boot from DVD is great. I just found a little issue with the pointer movement; it appears stuttering and not smooth at all.
Anyway, I think the OM official page should make clearer that booting from DVD is deprecated. Personally, I would appreciate an official guide to make a USB pen bootable with the LX4.3 image. I don’t think I am the only person who follows an old-fashoned booting approach…
