Problem starting X on a ASUS A7Jb
This is my first post. I need some help.
I want to install linux, more specifically Mandriva 2006, on a ASUS A7Jb laptop. If you wish, you can look at the the laptop specifications right here.
I tried to install mepis also, but I find it too limited for my needs. But anyway, the problem is similar in both. This is what happens:
I install (mandriva and mepis) with no problems. In mandriva, when the system starts and tries to execute X, it says it can't find a display/monitor, or something like that. On mepis, X starts. But as soon as I go to the display configuration, it says something like "lcd off", and the next time I start linux, it gives me the same error as mandriva.
Well, I know it is possible to start X on my laptop, because mepis does it (as long as I don't go to the display properties), and all the visuals in the installation are good.
Is there a line in xorg.conf where I can manually force X to detect the LCD from my laptop?
Is there another solution?
Please help me. I really need Linux on my laptop.
I need to start working on a very important PHP project, and I don't want to install apache, php and mysql on windows. I want to program in the languages' native environment. Plus, I want to really start using linux as my main OS.
