I'm trying to run DSL 3.2 on an old NEC Ready 120LT with a 200Mhz Cyrix processor, and 128MB of RAM. The video chipset is a NeoMagic MagicGraph 2097 128ZV with 1MB of video RAM.
I've only gotten X to work when I boot off the CD and specify "dsl vga=786" Any other option leads me to a garbled desktop, or X crashes.
If I use xvesa, then I'll end up with a garbled unreadable desktop, and when I kill X by pressing CTRL+ALT+BKSP the terminal is also garbled.
If i use xfbdev it crashes with the error
|XIO: fatal IO error 104 (connection reset by peer) on xserver ":0.0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.|
BTW, I'm a complete n00b, so thanks for any help.
