        I got this too, in the past.

        The computer would freeze at that point.

        If that’s what you have happening, then on the boot screen, erase the “splash” parameter, and it should work.

          I had the exact same problem when installing antix-core 19.4: it was fixed using Christophe’s suggestion.

          ▪ 32-bit antix19.4-core (SysV init)+LXDE legacy install on :
          - (2011) Samsung NP-N145 Plus (JP04UK) – single-core CPU Intel Atom N455@1.66GHz, 2GB RAM, integrated graphics.
          ▪ 64-bit antix21-base (SysV init)+LXDE legacy install on:
          - (2008) Asus X71Q (7SC002) – dual CPU Intel T3200@2.0GHz, 4GB RAM. Intel Mobile 4 Series, integrated graphics
          - (2007) Packard Bell Easynote MX37 (ALP-Ajax C3) – dual CPU Intel T2310@1.46GHz, 2GB RAM. SiS Graphics

            Stupid question but are you trying to use the GUI installer?
            I had the same problem with antiX 19.4 core but the CLI installer worked fine.

              Just to clarify for anyone using antix-core for the first time with the above problem – installation is a two-step process.
              The initial step is gui-based (the antix ‘welcome screen’), where you need to delete the ‘splash parameter’ as indicated by Christophe (just delete the whole line) and select your Fn-key options (e.g. language, time zone, etc). This step then flows into the next one, which is terminal-based, where you need to login to the cli-installer, using the word ‘root’ as both login name and login password.
