Re: Video problem with Debian etch-n-half


I tried the vga=771 parameter but nothing, it was the same.
Now i've switch to Debian Lenny and i did a minimal instalation with
video but it starts in run level 3 and the problem continues, so it's
not a video problem!
I've installed the b43 module and downloaded and cut the firmware,
i've not tried uninstalling the module, but could it be the reason of
the problem? could this module/firmware be the problem?
