Re: Hardware Compatability
Probably, or worse. But I really don't know. I suspect however (but
don't know) that Virtual PC is not presenting an "S3 . . ." card to the
OS on top of VirtualPC but rather some "standard" video card. In other
words, VPC might present a "Bob's AGP Card" on a Toshiba with an S3, ,
and it'll present a "Bob's AGP Card" on a Compaq with an ATI. So instead
of setting up Linux for an S3 or for an ATI, you'd need to set it up for
a "Bob's AGP Card".
To whom this may concern,
I tried to install Mandrake 9.2 and Redhat 9 onto a Toshiba Satellite 2400-s201 laptop w/256MB RAM and the processor is 1.6 GHz. I am trying to run it on Virtual PC that was downloaded from the Microsoft site. Everything installs fine, except when it boots up, X-Windows never loads up and I get an error saying that there is "No Device". This is due to Mandrake 9.2 and Redhat 9 not recogizing the Video Card and the monitor. The video card device is a "S3 Graphics SuperSavage / IXC1179". The monitor is a Toshiba Internal 1024x768 Panel Display. Will Debian experience this problem?
