Anyone installed slackware on a DELL Latitude XPi ?
I'm having trouble with the video driver and the bootdsks.

That's VERY interesting. I have a sort of converse problem with 1.2.8
on the same hardware. When I cold-boot my system the console display
is messed up. I blind-type my way into X or an SVGALIB application,
run that for 15 minutes or so and when I come out, I may have to do
setfont, but after that evrything is fine. When I soft boot from DOS,
reboot linux, or even power-on reset the system, when it is physically
warm, it runs perfectly.
For me this is no more than a nuisance, but I'd like to know what is causing it.
PS to run X you have to pretend that the video chip set is clgd5428, since the 7543 is not supported yet.
