I'm using YDL 2.2 CD with BootX installed to try to install linux on
my 7200. It has an ATI video card (XClaim3DPro) and that's what my
display is plugged into. I don't have an adapter to plug in my only
display into the Mac-style connector on the motherboard video.
When I run bootX, first I get some Linux text on the screen and it
immediately blanks the screen and there it sits. Black display,
nothing going on. I've tried both text-install kernel and the
supplied "X" kernel.
Anyone know of a way I can get this working or if it will ever work
installing with a PCI video card? Maybe I can try another distro? Or
do I have to get my hands on an adapter, even if it's just for the
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
