I just downloaded and installed Redhat 7.1. I have installed and
configured many flavors and versions of Linux before without any
problem, however I am having a very hard time with this system I am
trying to install on. The machine I am using is as follows:
Cyrix MII 366
32 MB RAM
4MB ATI Video
This system was successfully running Windows 98, however has never had
Linux installed on it before.
I went through the Linux GUI setup and everything looked like it went
well. I configured all the packages to install, let them install, and
then tested Xwindows. I then rebooted the box.
Upon reboot, it shows the Redhat startup and then tries to boot Linux.
It displays some information (too fast to see and I can't pause it)
and then it starts displaying long strings of characters and number
across the screen (i.e. [<e5580000>]. It does this with new strings of
characters and numbers and then just stops.
I have re-installed and still get the same problem... any suggestions
anyone? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time
