Got the AVlinux 4.0 working on the (...bit hard to find the word...) GeForce7050PV integrated.
For anybody who might find it useful, here's my howto:
1. AVlinux live DVD boot led to the VIDEO MODE NOT SUPPORTED msg, i.e. nowhere, I couldn't even get to a legible console.
2. The 'xforcevesa' option led to jubled yellowish mess, after hitting Ctrl+Alst+F2 it provided a console.Maybe I got to the console from the text-only boot option, actually, but the important thing is that is was somehow possible
found me the installer in
4. Running the Installer was a pleasure
5. Then I got the system which I could not see, but booting as single user (catching Grub options on booting with any key after the BIOS splash) made it possible to rewrite the
file according to the xorg.conf file which worked for me in the Debian 5 lenny
and then I copied the file to the /etc/X11/ directory
cp xorg.conf /etc/X11/
then I rebooted
closed my eyes or made my 1574th coffee
and voila there it was
I AM SURE that the procedure was probably unreasonably clumsy, but I am there and straight after next payday I'm on PayPal with my contribution!
As I said I absolutely love the distro (been on planetccrma so far and trying out UbuntuStudio for my students)
If anybody could use more details, post a message pls.
thanks to GMaq for great encouragement and all the work
