I want to install Linx Mint 9 Isadora LXDE on my old Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro v2030 Laptop.
Booting the Live USB works fine (done with UNetbootin). As soon as the GUI (I'm not sure if I'm rusing right jargon here - I'm talking about the login screen and desktop environment) shows up, I only see the upper-left Quadrant of the screen. If I change the resolution (which was set to 1600x1200 - very strange in my eyes) to 1024x768 (which is the highest supported by the laptop) in the Terminal ("xrandr -s 1024x768"), I get a broken screen and can't see anything. It's like horizontal green and white lines (I guess from the desktop-background).
edit: I have the exact same problem with Crunchbang 10. --> Do you maybe have other (better) advices or tips in terms of distros for my old laptop? So far I've tried Xubuntu, slitaz and Windows 7
This is my first topic (yay!).
