Question FC9 -beta Problem


I tried to install FC9 beta live CD on the following hardware . Please ignore the signature info.

A 2Ghz Athlon based board with Pro savage display card. 1GHz memory.

This just to see if it will install . I took a backup of the partitions with dd.
It does install .
But under the cursor is a black box which clears the screen as it moves ... What could I check ?

sounds like a /etc/xorg.conf issue.

boot up one of your existing fedoras....copy its file to removable media.

boot up the new distro and with root powers copy the old file to new.....but make sure you rename the existing file first....and since you have a live cd....you could also rescue back to the ugly setting if I am wrong

I tried to install F9 Beta from live cd, KDE. I got to the configure/ partitioning area and there appeared burnt orange boxes instead of some letters, got so bad I could not continue. The live CD works very well.

I've used the F9 install DVD on several boxes to date (ok, two. One with an i810 and one w/ an ATI Xpress 200M.) without any issues (Ok, I'd like dri on my Laptop, but, a whole nother story).

I am waiting to try the F9 preview live cd on a dell inspiron 1100, hope to have a report after upgrade of RAM arrives. I tried it with 256 MB and it was too slow.

I never tried again . It was a BETA version ... I have one partition just for trying out new Linux versions . Will try Mandriva now.
