I have been trying to get Fedora 7 to run on my notebook for the past week or so. I've gone through about 10 CDs/DVDs, trying different images; live cds, install CDs, Fedora 6, Fedora 7, etc...
Anyway, it seems to not like my display. I am guessing that it is my video card, or a lack of a driver for it. My specs are as follows:
Core Duo T2300 @ 1.66GHz
ATI Mobility Radeon X1800 (256MB)
It's an upgraded Alienware m5750 that I got about a year ago. I'll be putting in a Core 2 Duo in a couple of weeks, if that information is useful.
Basically, I just want to get Fedora 7 working with a GUI.
Let me know what more information is needed.
I've also tried Ubuntu, Xubuntu, and several others. The one that sort of worked (it gave me some sort of GUI) was MEPIS 6.5.
