    dsl waiting for input


    hi,i tried to install ds linux on a tecra 8200. i downloaded the iso, burned a cd, put it in my laptop and booted. i begin install,things seems to be fine. selected "secure install",so i#ve been asked for a root pwd and a dsl pwd. put them in, answer was "accepted",then "checking for mydsl apps...done", then "INIT: entering runlevel: 5", "session opened for user dsl by (uid=0)", then twice "xauth: creating new authority file /home/dsl/.Xauthority". Now it seems to be waiting for an input, but i can type everything, nothing happens...what's the next step? By the way, i chose this distro, because my pc is old and i've read dsl should be a good choice for older hardware,is this correct or would you suggest other distros?tecra 8200 is a pIII 850 with 128 mb ram.
    thanks for helping,

    solution

    Hi i got the same problem with a Tecra 8000
    when you boot with the cd, type F2 to stop the counting and type fb800x600 (once installed you will be able to change the resolution)
    for me it's works, i hope it will work for you to.
    Good Lucks
