Jetway Hybrid J7F2WE1G5D Mini-ITX Motherboard with VIA C7 1.5GHz Processor


I've got a Jetway Hybrid J7F2WE1G5D Mini-ITX Motherboard with VIA C7 1.5GHz Processor.

I'm running Mandriva 2007

When I start Mandriva it locks up at the new hardware detection (Harddrake). I disable harddrake (by poping the harddrive into another machine) and I get further, But Xserver will not load. I'm using KDE. I get a error 104 no screen found. (this is with onboard video)

I pop in an old videocard I got and it load OK.

I want to you the onboard video though. I tried a few liveCD's with the same result. The only version of Linux I've got that goes into the Xserver with the onboard video is DSL Linux. I like DSL, but not for what I'm doing.

Any suggestion?

I was a driver problem (The problem being I didn't have the drivers for the onboard video)
If any one else has his problem in Mandriva you can run 'XFdrake' at the command prompt and select and install the right drivers.
