I've installed Vector Linux on my AMD K6 500–odd MHz, 64MB RAM laptop. I chose 5.1 because of it's reduced RAM requirement.
The installation went without issue but on first boot, and all subsequent boots, the display dies after a second or two of displaying the username prompt. I'm baffled.
A bit of background, I'm a newbie to VL and Linux in general but this is the sixth distribution I'm trying—Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Fluxbuntu, DSL, DSL-N—of which, only Fluxbuntu and DSL have been successfully installed and only DSL was usable but at least I've learnt a fair bit along the way. My reason for trying VL was I couldn't get my Ralink PCMCIA Wifi driver going on DSL.
