Mandrake 9.0 Installation Problems: X-Server, GUI Problems?
Ive installed Mandrake 9.0 on 2 machines before with no problem.
They were both running Windows XP Pro. The dual boot installation went fine.
I just bought a new Microtel PC, with Lindows 3.0 installed on, and wanted to upgrade that as well.
When I booted off of the CD, I receieved no error messages.
I went through all the steps, until I got to configuring the
X Server. The monitor it finds no problem....( NEC ),
its the video card thats failing. The motherboard has a built in system with 8mb of memory. It came factory default with 128 mb...and I added a 256 chip. So I think there's enough memory.
When it defaults to 'Vesa' type, I try and test the screen, and get the error message 'no EE found'??
Ive checked my limited documentation of what came with the PC,
and all I can come up with is that its a TRITON motherboard, with on-board audio and video.
**If I go through the installation, when it boots up, I get the login prompt. I can log in as the root.....but cant get the GUI working?
I know a few other people that have had this problem....
What do you think?
