Debian Sid install using Knoppix - A Few Issues
I am trying to get a "pure" Debian setup going on my machine as part of a possible conversion project. The easiest way to do this (for me) was to do a Hard Drive install from the latest Knoppix CD (3.4 5/17 build).
This went just fine, and I can bring up the system ok, but I'm running into some issues. The Knoppix boards are generally unresponsive (at least to me :) ), and so figured some of y'all might be able to give me some direction. If you know of a better support forum for these issues, feel free to direct me there...
My issues are:
1) Desktop seems to be limited to 1024x768 even though my laptop runs just fine as 1440x900 under Windows. My video card is an nVidia GeForce FX Go5200 with 64 megs on the card. I'm wondering if the problem is that I need to install the driver from nVidia rather than the default that came with the distribution?
2) Installed the 2.6.6 kernel option. However, if I go to change anything I notice that /usr/src/linux is pointing to linux-2.4.26. Can I use synaptic to just get the latest source package, and would that get things pointing correctly?
3) Finally, am having some firewire "fun". Doing lspci shows both the internal and pc card firewire controllers, but running gscanbus or the other firewire scripts only shows the internal controller. Anything I might be missing that could be screwing up the PC card controller?
Thanks again for your help,
