Basic Linux 3.5
I've tried two small linux distros, Damn Small Linux and Basic Linux 3.5 and failed to get either working correctly. I'm trying BL 3.5 at the moment. I've made a directory in DOS, run from a basic dos prompt and as soon as I "startX the GUI only shows as coloured squares. I had the same problem loading the GUI in DSL. My old laptop is a Dell XPI P133St with 40 meg of ram, 4.2gb hard disc, display runs windows 98 at 80x60 with 256 colours with no problem at all.
Detailed instruction to get this working would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance. Ken.
