sledgehammer asked me to take a look at this Toshiba and I finally got it to work with Vector.....Just not VL 6.0 STD:
VL 6.0 Light Live and VL 6.0 KDE Live both rebooted from the Live CD flawlessly. I chose KDE Live because the Toshiba is a P4 with 1gb of RAM and handles it with ease.
First, though, I tried updating the 6.0 STD kernel to 22.214.171.124 on the existing installation thinking that the older 126.96.36.199 in 6.0 STD may be the issue - but that did not work. Interestingly, 188.8.131.52 worked, but the video was jumping all over the screen so I didn't go there.
After installing the 6.0 KDE Live CD to the HD, I had to Log Out and reboot from the KDM log-in screen. After that, everything seems to be working normally.
I want to use it for a couple of days to make sure that we are OK and, if it doesn't break, a young person will have an excellent laptop running 6.0 KDE.....
