I am trying to install WinLinux 2000 on my wife's
"Windows-Only" PC. The objective is to allow her to run
The PC has a "supported" ATI All-In-Wonder Pro graphics
card. The installation ran fine, and the WinLinux
Configuration Utility correctly lists the card. The Display
setting shows it as 1024*768 at 60 Hz, 16 bits per pixel,
which also appears OK.
When I try to boot WinLinux, I get a garbage screen within a
few seconds, perhaps as much as a minute before the KDE
startup. The logs in /linux/var/log are all empty.
I have tried forcing the display to VGA with only a 640 *
480 resolution, 4 bit color, didn't help. I have also
downloaded and installed the x 3.3.6 update, same problem.
The screen is displaying garbage and the system halts many
seconds before I think it is time to go into graphics mode.
I think I should have several more pages of text mode start
up messages, but the screen changes so fast I am unable to
read the last few messages.
