I'm sort of new to this whole linux thing and I have to say that at the moment it is sorting of putting me off because of the problem I have.
When ever I boot up into fedora core 3 from my USB harddrive ( I felt I achieved something when i got that to work) My screen goes blank just before the login screen. I can watch it boot all the way up boefore that and its fine but at the login screen it either switches off my monitor of puts the display ot some really funny low frequency. The really crap thing is it works sometimes, but not very often
Now after a little bit of research I have tried a couple of things.
1.Installed ATI driver - failed as no XFree86 with core 2
2.Tried changing graphics card settings to other (standard vga) as it is a 9700Pro although (Fedora tells me its a 9500Pro) no sucess, problem still exists.
Now after a little bit of research I think the problem relates to the fact that my mother board has a KT400 chipset? I think its some thing to do with the AGPGART??
Any advice for a newbie, thanks Before I format this drive and put something else on it and just install firebird on windows.
