Installing Debian with Kyro
I tried to install woody from disk, but the screen turns black after a while....

Ps: sorry i've got no err messages or something like that (cause there is nothing i can see *g*)

My system: K7T266 Pro, AMD Thunderbird 1,4 GHz, Hercules 3D Prophet Kyro II

Is that after the installation when you try to run X?
If it happens while running X, get the drivers & instructions here:

No it is before the installation. quite after booting from the disks.

No idea,sorry. Bought myself a geforce after all the problems I had with my Kyro2 card :/.

I have a Kyro II and debian R3.0 installs just fine with the 2.4 kernel...

When i configure X i use the fbdev driver and set the vga parameter @ lilo to 794 for a nice 1280x1024x16bit resolution... So the problem is probably elsewhere...

I've installed Debian 3.0 fine (bf24) with my Kyro II, but the driver will not compile. I've even tried using alien to convert the powervr .rpm to a .deb, but insmod fails with unresolved dependencies.

It looks like some of you were able to compile the driver, do you have any tips? Can you help me?

Thanks a million.
