Mandriva 2006 crashes when testing X config
I've searched the internet but I can't find the problem neither it's solution.
I'm installing Mandriva 2006 and everything is going fine untill I want to test my graphics configuration. I have a Riva tnt2 and it is auto detected. When testing the config at 1024x768 @ 16bit it just displays a corrupt image and setup hangs. It doesn't go back to the setup screen after 12 seconds or more.
Is it a driver problem of the build in drivers or something else? Help! :)
was great with mandrake 9.0
i had a riva tnt2 card in a computer a couple of years ago and only had problems when i first installed. i think from memory(and thats corrupted these days) i ended up using the generic driver for the chipset.. that was on the card..
(generic) driver for riva tnt2 for x-server
use 800x600 to test with.. at 16 bit (if it works then try 32 bit)
default your monitor unless you have the exact monitor in the vendor list..
leave mouse setting as default as this can cause drama's too..(don't change what was probed)
select basic 101 keyboard unless probed correctly..
your graphics card is well supported in kde 2 but i'm not sure about kde3..
that maybe where your problem lies too.. when they changed to kde3 they dropped a lot of older cards in favour of newer ones and reduced the size of the install discs. also some of the feaatures in the later desktops aren't functional on some older cards..
you could try installing an earlier version of your desktop ie kde 2.? instead of the later kde3.+..
hope this info can help you with your problems and have fun!!!
