Problems setting up RedHat5.2 on DELL Optiplex GX1

Problems setting up RedHat5.2 on DELL Optiplex GX1

Post by jayar.. » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00

I am having problems setting up RedHat5.2 on a Dell OPtiPlex GX1 (PII-
400Mhz/128Meg/6GB) with a Windows NT Partition.

The Installation goes OK except for the NIC and Graphics Card.The PC
has inbuilt 3Com 5x905b-TX NIC and ATI RAGE PRO (AGP2X chipset).
Although the Redhat site mentions of compatible drivers for these, I am
unable to setup the above for Networking and X-Windows. The X-Free S/W
ver is 3.3.1. I am able to boot the Linux in standalone and Non-
graphics mode only because of this.

Could anyone help me with this? Thanks

1. Jittering problem ATI Rage Pro/Dell Optiplex GX1


I have Dell Optiplex GX1 with integrated ATI Rage Pro 3D AGP, RH7.0. My
problem appears
like jittering of the picture   which is most visible on the window
borders. It seams like
there is some relation to the disc activity too. This is not only Linux
problem, I had it with
NT4 too but it was solved by installing Dell supplied driver. W2K
doesn't have this problem.
The problem persist with both XFree 3.3.6 and XFree 4.0 servers. Aside
for this problem
servers run fine. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
