I'd appreciate some help from anyone who has installed Linux on an Advent
6414 laptop before.
I'm after installing Red Hat but I can't get X to work. I'm aware my graphics
card (SiS 630s) is a bit crap, but I know there is a work around where I add
vga=791 to my lilo.conf and turn framebuffer graphics mode on.
I've done all this but get the following error when I try to start x:
FBIOPUT_VSCREENINFO: Invalid argument
Fatal server error:
AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0
Any ideas how I can sort this out???
