RE: New Installation



For those interested, using 'linux text' is under way and working to get my
installation completed. 

I am not sure how to apply influence, or offer a suggestion, but it would
have been nice for the install to recognize the problem with running X and
rather than telling me it was safe to "you may safely reboot your system" it
could ask if I wanted to perform a 'linux text" install instead. 

If nothing more than -

"if this message is seen during initial installation it is safe to reboot
and at the boot prompt type 'linux text'"

would have given me a heads up to what was going wrong.

My next question is now that I have done a linux text install happening, do
I only have a command line interface or will KDE or GNOME work?

Thanks,
Jim Carlson

The video is built into the 810 chipset motherboard. Since it is mounted
inside the chassis, I have not taken the screw driver to it yet. If that is
what it takes to get specific chip info, I will.

For now, I am going to try 'linux text'


Thanks,

You probably will not be able to install in graphical mode. Try 'linux 
text' at prompt when you boot from CD1. The install will continue as 
usual, but without pretty graphics.

What type of Video card is it ?

Cheers,
Michael
