Here is the issue:
Red Hat 5.0 (although this happens in Enterprise)
BTW, what in the command to check the version?
Right from the install, the when installing in GUI mode, the video goes screwy, IE, it starts to draw strange colors then dies. This happens on two laptops (Compaq) one old one brand new. I understand that Compaq is aware of the issue but thier bios patch does not seem to work or I am installing it incorrectly.
In any event, the error I get with Red Hat 5.0 when starting "X" is:
XIO: Fatal IO error 104 (and so on)
Above, this error which became entruncated, looked like it was trying to tell me something about the video card.
So, my question is:
Where to start to troubleshoot this, and how can I view the entire error on the screen?
