I am trying out vector linux on an old Dell dimension 2100. Vectorlinux seems like a good choice for this old hardware, since it is lightweight, and uses xfce. The problem is vector doesn't properly identify the on-board intel 810e graphics. As a result the graphical installer compresses everything into a bar along the top of the screen. I installed using the text based installer, but when I booted, I got alternating bars and blocks of color. Fortunatly I had a similar problem with a Suse install on this machine, and had an idea what to do. Suse would only run at 480x620 untill I edited xorg, and I was able to get vector working this way too. Here are the changes I made:
BoardName "Intel 810"
Now vector seems to be working well, and my question is where to report the driver problem. I know this hardware can be identified properly, since i have had it be identified properly in previous (Ubuntu?) installs. Hopefully the vector devs will be interested in making this true for vector too.
