Mandrake 9.0 Install help reqd
I bought an Acer 4021WNLCi notebook yesterday with following config:
# IntelŪ PentiumŪ M processor 725 (2 MB L2 cache, 1.6 GHz, 400 MHz FSB)
# IntelŪ 915GM Express chipset
# Integrated IntelŪ PRO/Wireless 2200BG network connection (dual-mode 802.11b/g)
# 512 MB of DDR2 533 memory
# IntelŪ 915GM integrated 3D graphics, featuring IntelŪ Graphics Media Accelerator 900
# HDD 60 GB ATA/100
When installing Mandrake 9.0 came accross just one error, it does not detect the display card and monitor. As per the Acer resource CD i have 2 display drivers namely IntelŪ 915GM and IntelŪ 915GML (this i believe is for linux, couldn't find any information on the website though). Now my problem is installing or detecting this driver when installing the OS for the first time fresh. The list of xservers does not allow me to specify a driver from disk, how do I go around this problem. Although the OS installation completes somehow when I select i845 from the Intel but upon rebooting the GUI/xserver does not launch and I have to work in the dos like or character interface, although this is not too bad but I'd like to use the windowed interface also.
Pls help me resolve this issue, I am newbie and dont know much about changing config files.
FYI: HDD 60 GB is partitioned as follows
a. C: - Fat32; Win2k; 10G
b. D: - Fat32; 30G
c. Remaining data for Linux, approx 20G
