I've installed Debian Sarge 3.1 from the CD images supplied on
Linux Format LXF70 (Image CDs burned from magazing DVD).
Target platform is a P III 800 with 128 MB ram
The install went ok. But when I fire up the system and login as root
Xwindows falls over complaining that it is missing symbols.
An declares that it fails to find a screen.
I have executed xf86config from the command prompt under root
to reconfigure Xwindows.
I have tried a number of alternative PCI display cards, and matched them by manufacturer and specification. I have tried all sorts of configurations
from standard VGA upward.
Q1 : Is this a known issue ?
Q2 : Any idea what the cause of the problem may be ?
All assistance appreciated
