Hey, I installed last night (it took ALL night!).
When it started up first time it did some more first-run config like setting up the display resolution. It asked me if I wanted to select from a list of options or use 'AUTO (no questions)'. Being lazy/dumb, I went for that one!
It then seemed to find my display details... it then fell over with an error in /var/log/Xorg.0.log - apparently, there are no devices listed in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Now, I do have a little experience in RedHat/Fedora/Solaris and I figured that if I could get to a term I could have a poke around, maybe use vasm/vasmCC to put things right. [I have no idea what vasm/vasmCC is but the start-up mention that I might wanna poke around the config with them]
But what happens is that start-up gets as far as the X server falling over because of the above, then it just hangs on the start-up progress bar screen. If I press ESCAPE (I think) I get a blue screen with some start-up trace, a border and the VL logo in the lower-right. And a prompt. I can type in to that prompt but it seems to print but then ignore (i.e. just echo) absolutely any input.
Any pointers on how to get past this blue screen of pergatory very much appreciated. Further pointers on correcting the X config also much appreciated.
Incidentally, I'm also fascinated by the 10 second count-down right at the start of boot... if I stab at the right key (and it is a guess) I can get to a boot: prompt. And if I guess right again I can get what looks like a list of start-up profiles... a list of 1 - VectorLinux. Am I right? I'm getting a 10 second delay in boot in order to give the the chance to confirm that I do in fact want the only choice from the list of 1???
Any help much appreciated.
