Video not working on 5.01
I just tried to use the livecd on a computer with the following specs:
1.25 gigahertz AMD Athlon
1024 Megabytes Installed Memory
NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 Model 64 [Display adapter]
ViewSonic P225 [Monitor] (19.7"vis)
Neither the default or safe mode would produce a video display other
than the cursor. If I move the mouse and watch the cursor it would get
brighter when it went over an area where an icon likely existed. Sound
works. the computer often runs MEPIS 8 just fine, so we seem to have a
hardware detection problem with Lenny. Any suggestions for boot codes
or other? I tried the vga=771 code, but it didn't help.
I have to say that I'm very disappointed in the result, but hopefully it
is something simple.
