I have recently installed XBMC Live 10.1, but I can't get it to run.

I've logged in and receive this message:

Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS XMBCLive tty

XBCMLive login: <my userid>
Linux XBMCLive 2.6.32-29-generic #58-Ubuntu SMP Fri 11 19:00:09 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux
Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS - XBMCLive Dharma

Welcome to Ubuntu!

To run a command as administrator (user: "root"), use "sudo <command>".
See "man sudo_root" for details.

copy the output of ~/.xbmc/temp/xbmc.log and put it into a pastebin and post the pastebin URL here.

Log in again and type:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall xinit x11-xserver-utils xbmc-live

Also very useful for every problem report: details about your hardware, read a bit and searching the forums.

well....the most common reason for this is broken or missing driver for graphical card.
Maybe tell him to check that first.
