    lol I missed that somehow, it slipped down the list of posts and I missed it.

    I believe that they build new isos weekly so perhaps it will be fixed.

    I d/l'd and installed neon-unstable-20200419-1103.iso awhile back in a VM. The neon-user-20200409-1111.iso release would boot and install (VM) but would not get past black screen upon reboot. I didn't bother trying to fix it, I just d/l'd the newer one.

    The current one seems to be working fine. During the week I transitioned to QEMU/KVM from Vbox by converting the disk, no problems. Todays update had issues - initramfs could not be built against the new 5.3.0-51 kernel but it rebooted into 5.3.0-46 OK

    Thanks to all. I was finally able to download the neon-user-20200416-1115.iso file. It installed with no issues and it just finished updating in the VM. I look forward to playing with Neon until I make a decision when the next major version releases.
