After several weeks of searching for a PCI video card (pretty hard to find here in my Country), I got to buy an ATi Radeon 9250 card. Then I ran and asked for the new version of KUBUNTU and UBUNTU.
I just got the CDs (GREAT SERVICE!!!! ), and tried to install either of the OS.
Nada. None worked.
I tried all different ways, and never got beyond the KUBUNTU screen.
It said all the "Loading essential drivers...", and the rest of the lines at the beggining, and then it froze in the KUBUNTU screen.
My Computer is an IBM ThinkCentre:
Intel Celeron 2.40GHz
1,00 GB of RAM (DDR266)
256 MB of Video - ATi Radeon 9250 (PCI Slot)
2 Hard Drives, 80GB for Windows XP, and 40GB for KUBUNTU (I hope!)
That would be your video driver. When it stops at the kubuntu screen hit alt-F2 to switch to a different console. Then edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf and change the driver to say "vesa". Then you will be able to start x, and after you get X running then you can download and install the fglrx drivers to get 3d.
I need more help :S
AzrielMacKay, anyone else, please, I'm not sure what to change.
After trying to "sudo -edit xorg.conf" in the "/etc/X11" path, I realized I couldn't do it, so I did some "chmod" until I was able to overwrite the file, but I don't know exactly what to edit there.
Some section said:
Identifier "Intel ..." (perhaps it's original video chipset)
Bus ID "PCI:0:2:0"
I changed that "i810" for "vesa", but got something like this after trying "X":
(==) Log file: ...
(==) Using config file: "etc/X11/xorg.config"
(EE) I810(0) cannot read V_Bios
(EE) I810(0): VBE ...
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a useful configuration
Please, make KUBUNTU easy for everyone!
All help will be appreciated!
KUBUNTU is running just dandy!!
Isaksson.Henrik, you were of great help for me!!
I couldn't possible do all that being new at Linux.
By the way, how can I edit files with the sudo option inside Kubuntu environment?
I mean, I can't find the way to edit the menu.lst file at the GRUB folder :S
Need help one more time.
