Having problems on an old Dell 2.4GHz Celeron box with 2Gb DRAM, built-in Intel VGA (with max 8Mb of shared system memory for video - max 640x480 screen size in 16 colors!!! Unusable.) with a Matrox Millineium II VGA card added with 64Mb dedicated VRAM, as "plain vanilla as it gets.
This box ran Ubuntu 10 reasonably well, no install or other video problems, runs all variants of Puppy Linux just fine, the MGA card is detected and used, as selected in BIOS, just fine.
Bodhi install disk runs fine and looks good when Option 2 (software rendering) is selected. Install went without a hitch. But have two BIG "show-stopper" probs. 1) Black screen upon boot, and 2) If I boot into "Console mode" to try and correct the first [who knows how many] section of available scrolls offscreen and cannot be accessed. The "| more" argument is not available to cause pagination, as in >help | more
Inspection of the X11R7 config file shows correct identification of the MGA card and the "mga" driver is called first, but the code appears to lack an exit point when a video driver successfully loads, which appears to be loading the Intel video driver as well! I only have one monitor.
Bodhi is a great looking product, well designed, thoughtfully put together - one of the most polished distro's I have ever seen and I have been "on board" with *nux OS's since the late 1970's (Berkeley Unix 1.8), NeXT box in 1984 (Berkeley Unix 2.0) and later Linux - all flavours.
Any suggestions? Many thanks!
