Stope the boot before the GUI appears?
Hello, since I've had lots of problems with this, maybe a better solution is to see if anyone can tell me how to stop the GUI interface from coming up. That's were I believe I lose video. It seem every time someone tells me how to fix something and I apply it, it does work or it can't find some other program. I don't know how many times I've rebuilt the Debian system and after the loss of a hard drive and one DVD drive I'm trying to see a better way.
I have a Mac G5, when it installs Debian, it all works fine, but when it reboots the video is lost. A person helped me out with an addition to the yaboot.conf file, but when I try to run ybin it chokes on a number of issues. Then I find that there is a yabootconf script that will change the root for ybin, which is what I believe I need, but it also chokes when I attempt to run it.
So I figure if I can stop the gui, I won't lose video and be able to change the proper files, put the gui back and run ok.
