slackware x in asus laptop
I just purchased this new ASUS A6U laptop and installed slackware 10.2 on it as a full install. This is my 4th try but everytime when i go to X-win (kde) and log out or while i am in kde if i try getting to other terminals with Cntrl + Alt + f3 etc the screen just goes blank and I can't see or do anything even in the terminal where the xwin was intally started (suspect it is 7).
But if i login to root from terminal 6 (this is still all blank so I am typing without seeing anything on the screen) and issue shutdown -r now it works. That means the system is still running in the background and its just the screens on all terminals including xwin one are blank.
Any suggestions in fixing this? I would imagine if the Sis Graphic card was incompatible it wouldn't start the xwin in the first place...
kernel version is 2.6 and modules 2.6 installed with gcc for that version of kernel as well. (initally used test26.a from slackware cd as a kernel image and installed modules from disk 2 and the gcc etc from "testing" folder in disk 3 of installation disks)
thanks in advance....
