I was using Mandrake an Redhat for a long time and a friend tell me about debian and it's functionnality. So, I decided to test this OS.
I downloaded a CD (2.2R3 for X86) and install debian without problem except for X which didn't recognize my video card.
I tryed to point my source distrib to debian mirror sites (stable or not) with deselect to find an xserver-svga that work with my computer without success!
I also tried to install my mandrake 8 XF86Config with the same problem.
Can U tell me if I missed something or I will not be able to use Debian!
Shall I have to compile XFree 4 myself ?
My computer is a VAIO PCG-F707 with a NeoMagic card.
All is working fine (mem/hdd/xircom network card...)
The only resolution I get is an horible 320x200x8bits!
