I have been trying to install RedHat 9.0 for a few days but still no X.
I also have a Diamond Stealth II S220 with Rendition Verite 2K and the installer sees it as RV2K Series.
I have tried to change the monitor but still at the test screen I get a momentary blank screen whenever I try to test the settings ( other than 8bit, where I get 320*200 )
I have started X but it is really discouraging with 320*200.
I have tried a lot of combinations (in X) and in the end :
I defined my card with its own name; and as driver I chose Rendition.
What I got afterwards is just random colors at the screen.
I can neither change my sessionCtrl + Alt + (F*), not my resolution with Ctrl + Alt + (+/-).
I have also installed linux with automatic graphics screen logon nd when I try Ctrl + Alt + (BackSpace) I have a blank screen.
I have searched a lot on the internet but couldn't find any answers. (42 may be an good one).
here are my questions:
1 - how can I prevent linux to boot directly to graphics
2 - is there a way to have more than 320*200 with RedHat 9.0
3 - I am downloading RedHat 7.3, will it help.
I am really desperate ...
I do not want to run M$W .....
Thanks in advence.
