Knoppix Live 6.0.1 display problem
I'm a total Linux n00b.
I burned a Live CD which works well on my laptop & my desktop.
I was at a client's house, trying to access their H/P which has a 1600 X 1200 LCD monitor (approximately).
Knoppix boots fine but when it gets to the GUI, the monitor goes blank for a couple of seconds and then gets gray-white at the edges. This gray-white grows until it covers the whole screen and then the monitor goes blank.
A couple of times it thought I could dimly see some "command line" type of displays or something in the gray-white but it was very faint.
It appears that Knoppix is running because I can briefly press the power button and the text display shows up with the shut-down sequence and the "remove media" message.
What's going on? :confused:
Is there something I can do here?
Should I look at another brand live CD?
I need something that allows me to work with Windows hdd's .
