Re: trouble installing x-window system
Thanks Mitch, I'll give that a try. I was wondering: would it would make
any difference if I used Tasksel and chose laptop system during the
installation. (I skipped over tasksel during my first installation
attempt, and now I'm gearing up for a second try.)
Try providing the output of lspci -vv (It can help if you can find the
field for the video adapter and post only that).
The rage mobility M1 is a mach64 card and it uses the ati driver.
Try setting only the native screen resolution for you lcd as a start and
not all 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768. Maybe that causes a lockdown since
the card doesn't handle this for some reason. If its a 14.1"+ screen its
probably 1024x768 with that card.
