I am trying to install Vector Standard 5.9 from CD and all goes well until just the Xorg configuration. It asks me what resolution I would like (I have a Samsung 920nw 1440x900 on Intel 82945 GMA 950) so I obviously tried 1440x900. The screen goes blank and that's it. So I've tried to reinstall........ two more times with 1024x768 and VL mode and I am still getting the same results. Slackware 12.1 was a bugger to get working properly (had to write the whole of my xorg by hand) and I just wanted Vector to work as a stable 'haven't-bodged-it-together-myself' workstation.
Trying to repair or just booting up from Lilo just results in a system hang as well but I still have Fedora 8 and Slackware 12.1 running on this machine without a problem. Do I need to reinstall or has Vector installed enough at this point, and if so how do I get into Vector and which drivers do I use for optimal performance? I want my graphics working as quickly as possible because even with Fedora 8 my windows leave a trail behind and sometimes mplayer stumbles. I have a Core2Duo E4400 with 2Gig of ram so this shouldn't be an issue, I hope.
