nforce2+ati9250agp mb tiring install experience
« on: March 12, 2009, 04:46:44 am »


Just tried installing VL6.0 gold  to a  PC  with Nforce2 chipset plus ati9250AGP MB last night(VL6.0gold cd install),installing process went smoothly,i Chosed ati radeon open source driver, then booted into xfce desktop fine,when checked the networks ONLY ONE NETWORK NIC(forcedeth) was Dectected  ANOTHER ONBOARD 8139 NETWORK NIC WASN'T DETECTED AT ALL,how should i make 8139 NIC working then by editing kernel/network config files???
(under knoppix5.31, both NIC work nicely..)
Later I entered VASM tried switching ATI9250 AGP  driver to ATI property  driver FGLRX,failed  with error messages at kernel patches compilings...then  made uninstall fglrx by " /usr/share/ati/fglrx", and reconfigured ATI9259 to radeon open source driver again.....Dissapointedly I encountered follow-up hassel,once rebooting the VL blue booting splash window won't appear, instead with ordinary rolling white booting texts on black screen,I like the blue background  at booting to come back again, pls. instruct me the commands.   

A bien tot!
