I'm having problems putting RH5.1 on my TI/Acer TravelMate 7000.
The laptop is a 166MMX, 32M ram, 2.1G hard drive, and I *think* it just
has PCMCIA (I don't have a CardBus card to confirm...) Win95 reports
very little about the chipset..only that it is a PCIC compatible PCI to
From my previous experience with laptops, that alone made me cringe, but
it seems to work well enough under Win95.
Anyways, on to my problem.
I was able to repartition the drive and put RH5.0 on with no problems
(other than the video - NeoMagic - which I've read how to fix.) However
at work, we just got a 5.1 CD so I thought I'd give it a try.
After I select my keyboard, the screen scrolls and says:
Cirrus PD6729 found, 2 sockets
At first, I thought this was because of the PCMCIA card I had inserted -
a 3Com 3C589D (10Mbps card), so I removed it and tried again. Same thing
The TM7000 must be fairly new, as I've seen no information about it on
any Linux website (yes, I found the Linux Laptop page). Even Acer has
no information on this thing...what is it, a stealth laptop? ;)
Again, 5.0 installation went just fine.
