Damn Small Linux on IBM Thinkpad 701c
Has anyone here had experience installing DSL on an IBM Thinkpad 701c?
I've got it installed, got GRUB to work properly, and everything seems ok, except that I can't get any video settings to work, and as a result my screen is just black. I am certain that DSL is running in the background, as a Ctl+Alt+Del causes the processor and hard drive to run, then I hear a few beeps, and hitting the enter key causes the computer to power off. (I can see all of this if I run DSL in text mode and exit.)
I've tried VGA in framebuffer mode, but I get an error that "fb0" can't be found. I've tried VGA VESA, and I don't get errors, but only blackness, regardless of whether I choose what I believe are the hardware specs for the monitor (640x480, 16bit color) or choose other options:
640x480 4bit color
do nothing (the default is 1024x768 32bit color)
When prompted, I've tried either entering 72dpi (not sure if this is correct or not) or not entering anything (letting DSL deal with it).
So is there something I am missing? I suppose I could continue and try every possible permutation, but I believe I have attempted all of the ones that *should* work. However, I am sure I am missing something...
Any help would be appreciated.
