X and Fluxbox :: Display Issue
I have managed to install DSL to my HDD with this problem, but I can't use DSL with it.
When I boot into DSL the screen turns green and has a 'mesh' effect over it, it's hard to make out anything.
I've tried vga=788 and that didn't work.
I'm running it on my old laptop:
Dell Latitude CP
256MB Swap Space
Is there any other information needed?
Thanks in advance.
try vga=normal and/or dsl xsetup
Tried both of them, same problem.
Try the fb=800x600 boot option/"cheatcode". Framebuffer mode works fairly well with those old neomagic video controllers.
Once you've got DSL running, you can switch to using Xfree86.unc if you're not satisfied with the video performance.
I using vga=789 with a Neomagic NM2160 [MagicGraph 128XD] (rev 01)
