I am a newbie to Linux and have been on and off trying on RH 7.1 in my old
machine since 4 months, yet not confortable. Now, I have assembled a new
machine in lieu of my old machine.
Yesterday, I had successfully installed RH Ver 8.0 in my machine.
My Machine Configuration is as follows:
Intel D845GLLY Mother Board
with integrated Sound and Video
40 GB HDD
Samtron 56v 15" Monitor
Logitec Optical Mouse...
I have the following problem,
1. X Configurator auto deducted my on-board Video Card by installed the
i810/815 Chipset Video Drivers I think... due to which, the X when started
distorted image appears on the screen.., but I am able to login, after the
resolution is such that the fonts are too big and everything id out of
focus in the monitor.
2. The Sound test was performed after in the final stages of installation,
but the sound did not play on testing the same.
3. I am using a DAX 56k External Modem, which was also not deducted by
Everything is working fine in my Windows 98 SE Boot. The GRUB also got
installed without any problem providing the option of Dual Boot between RH
Ver 8 and my Windows 98SE.
I was completely planning to convert to RH Linux but these problems somehow
keeps me away from getting on to Linux.
I tried the Intel Web Site and Google for help but did not find much help,
Intel site does not have any drivers for the same in their Website.
Any help is highly apperciated. Also, let me know how to install the
drivers and configure the same to work correctly with RH Linux. First hand
experience is an added value to sort out my problem.
