Before the desktop is supposed to appear, I get a forever loooping error (about a dosen lines) that have a lot of numbers followed by:
[ 271.916615] [drm:i9xx_check_fifo_underruns] *ERROR* pipe B underrun
The lines doesn't stay long enough on screen so I get the chance to write down the full error lines.
Also, since I never get to the desktop I cannot run any commands to get the hardware specs.
Try to boot and choose xforcevesa mode, see if that changes anything.
Goes like: First appears something that looks like severe screen tearing. Then a blinking marker at upper left corner. Long pause - new white sreen that looks completely messed up. Not close to look like nothing.
That is the best way I can describe it. Cannot read any symbols or possible error messages.
What I can say - I just installed Salix Fluxbox 14.1 and I can tell for sure that the computer works.
