Edit: this is fedora core 5 im trying to get to work
First off, i am a complete and total *nix noob and this is my second time trying to install a linux distro on my system (1st time was mandrake few months ago but couldnt get it to work and got fed up).
Here's the problem:
I see an off white screen with a black cursor which i believe is right when the gui is enabled and the real installation starts and then it does not allow me to move the cursor and does not progress at all. So, yes it becomes non responsive.
1.Where would i get these "generic" drivers for linux?
2. How do i insert them into the install program (the problem happens when loading up the gui in the install, i never get to loading the os.)?
Edit: If this helps, knoppix works fine although without ethernet support.
I really want to try out linux, i truly do. But everytime i try to install fedora or just about any other distro (mandrake, suSe) it freezes at one point.
In the fedora install it goes through the early stuff fine but when the gui gets loaded (off white screen with black pointer)...
I have a regular pc dell crt monitor and the mac i came across (an apple performa) has a port that looks kinda like a crt, and with the same amount of pins, but its wider.
Are there adapters for this and what type of port is this really?
Im using an audigy now and I uninstall the onboard sound thru device manager, but whenever i restart the computer windows tries to install the onboard sound. How can i disable the actual hardware. I couldnt find a setting in the bios for it.
Ok, Heres the problem:
I deleted the /KERNEL= switch in the boot.ini for my xp prof install and now it wont run.
Does anybody know what the /KERNEL= switch does and how i can find out what the switch for it was (what files it refers to)?
Unfortuantly, I forgot the switch, but i know it...
I have that case, its okay. It has hella airflow, but dont plan on modding it at all. Not good for water cooling (too many 8mm's, no 120mm's)
However, it does impress the ladies though :p
Edit: Be careful when removing the front, the 2 clear plastic things are supposed to be there.
I would imagine the powersupply is overheating, because im pretty sure most modern processors only start experiencing heat damage at 70c+ (except for teh prescott) So i doubt that your computer would turn off at just 59c.
Its a Built-by-Ati Radeon 9800 pro in perfect condition. It has no box, software or other goodies but I could burn a cd full of drivers and instructions.
What would be a good starting bid on ebay for this?
(Of course,im using this money to get an x800 pro :p )
Ps: Should I take off teh...
Hey, I got teh IC7-G:
Just raise teh fsb untill you cant anymore, then change the fsb/mem ratio to 5/4 and raise teh clock speed some more.
If its not to stable, raise teh memory voltage and lower teh mem timeings
This sucks, the ic7-g has no retention mechanism for the agp slot. Any ideas on how to secure the graphics card?
Once i put on the waterblock, the tubing might put to much stress on teh card and pull it out :mad:
Well, I have good reason to believe that water cooling will help. My northwood IDLES (note: idles) at around 50 when oced (Im using a really crappy vantec cooler, but remember this is a northwood)
You dont even want to know the load temps (they often break 75c)
So i think its safe to...
