I'm looking for some help getting Puppy Linux installed on this old laptop (Toshiba Satellite 1800-100 with 128Mb Ram)
I have PL on a CD. Allowing the install/run to complete of its own accord results in a blank screen. I've figured out this is due to an xorg issue, possibly explained in this post here:
Ie, NoDDC needs to be an option in the xorg.conf file's DEVICE section.
(However, since I've no got it working I can't confirm that this is the solution
Anyway, by pressing F2 during launch and entering
boot: puppy pfix=nox
If I launch xorg-setup from the prompt then I'm told that it can't determine the display driver (it should be trident) so I get to choose a generic one. No worries, I pick 1024x768x16, which should work.
But it doesn't.
So I started editing the conf file to include the "NoDDC" option described above.
Copying the conf file in its entirety from the link above doesn't work; more blackness.
Cherry picking the monitor, screen and device settings doesn't work.
Also: xorgwizard just blacks out.
Any help would be appreciated...
