Slacko 5.4 not booting gui live usb. DVI to VGA adapter problem?
I have a Dell Optiplex sx270 which only has a DVI connector, so I must use a DVI to VGA adapter to run it on my monitor. I've used this stick on my other laptop and it ran just fine. I feel like it might be an issue with the DVI to VGA. The stick boots to the puppy screen (choosing boot options & such), but once I attempt to start the gui, the screen goes black and there's nothing, no command line. I attempted playing with the Xorg wizard, ran vesa drivers, tried to run from RAM, turned off ACPI, all sorts of stuff. I believe the video graphics controller is Intel Extreme Graphics 2 (integrated). I also tried running Ubuntu, same issue, black screen with nothing.
I'm not super experienced with Linux, I'm hoping I'm just overlooking something small because I have a LOT of these small Optiplexes and I'd love to set up a number of them running Linux. Should I modify the Xorg.conf file to something specific to this machine/monitor?
