I have a Toshiba Satellite 1805-S203 laptop, which has a Trident Cyberblade video card. The live disc boot goes all the way to the point of launching the desktop, then freezes with a blank screen. Searching the forums this seems to be a problem with xorg.conf. Puppy Linux 4.0 and opensuse work (Puppy Linux 3.4 didn't, 2.14 did!). Ubuntu doesn't, but there may be a solution in the alternative boot iso.
Is there any way I can insert the xorg.conf files from either Puppy or Opensuse into the boot process to bypass the video probing?? I would really like to try Mint.
