Has anybody tried linux on Fuego 218 laptop?
I installed RedHat7.1 on Fuego 218, it is not a known brand for laptop, but using sis630ST video card and ordinary 14.1" XGA, TFT. During the installation, there was indeed a choice for sis630 and so this video is supported by rh7.1. But whatever changes I made using Xconfigurator, it could only display 640x480, otherwise the screen truns to black. I have windows2000 and could display 1024x768.
Could anybody tell me if I need a newer version of redhat (for example 9.0), or if there are some other things I should understand?
