Thanks for that quick reply.
I went ahead and tried to install your latest version but it fails to launch. I get a black screen with a mouse pointer. SMB access is working but can't get SSH or FTP access. I'm guessing Xorg configuration problem but I can't gain access to change it. I have a legacy nVidia card.
Have you used different root passwords? I can't get a pastebin for logs but have attached logs I got from SMB. Hopefully, you can shed some light.
