I am installing red hat 8.0, I get a message that says "Video Mode not supported"
Posted on 2003-03-08
I am trying to install Red Hat Linux 8.0. The computer specs are as follows: Dell Dimension 2300, P4 1.8 Ghz, 384mb ram, some built-in video card, 30gb HDD, Currently running Windows XP Home. The monitor is a Samsung Syncmaster 151v. When the cd boots I press enter for a normal installation. The cd media test is fine. Then when I hit ok to go to the installation, the screen blanks out and says "Video Mode not supported". I tried the installation with a regular 17" dell crt and it works fine. Previously I had used the same lcd for another linux box that I had and it worked fine. So I don't think there's anything wrong with the lcd since it currently works fine in a windows xp environment. I allocated 5gb for linux. Which to me is plenty of room. Please let me know if there are new or current problems with my monitor.
