yet another distro with no video on my lappy
ok fellas, i have tried, Suse 10, Mandrake 10, Ubuntu 5.10, Fedora 4 and 5.
out of all of those only Mandrake 10 works on my laptop, what gives.
basically at some point during the install the xserver either can not initize the video or it loses video.
With Fedora 5 once it hits the install part where it wants the type of language and keybaord it loses video.
suse gets all the way thru til the reboot and then cant produce a video signal..
mandrake works fine
ubuntu same thing fails to show video right away..
so whats up fellas why are these brand new distro's not even tested... i mean seriously my laptop is nothing special..
x700 pci-e w/ 128meg dedicated ram
wireless and wired network
basically Suse, Fedora, and ubunu all appear to be working i just dont have any video..
i think it was .. hhmm one of those i cant recall made it to the desktop but every 10 seconds kept stopping and saying another xserver is trying to start do you want to allow it to start.. i said no or yes the screen would go back to the console and i would have to hit ctrl-alt F whatever number to bring it back then 10 seconds later it would do it again.
i like Mandriva but prefer Suse, and im ok with Fedora thats why i wanted to try 5.
but what is the deal here, ive seen other random people reporting the same thing.
has linux gotten to be in such a rush to put out more distro's that they arent even tested ? seems that way...
