I have a Dell 4500s Intel P4 box 1.8 GHZ 256MB Ram with a Brookdale video chip [I think] or it's Intel 845 that normally uses the "i810" driver. When I try to run the Bianca 2.2 KDE mini CD It will not start x. I've tried suggestions from these links and covered all 4 pages of the Install and Boot forum:
http://www.linuxmint.com/wiki/index.php ... ur_Live_CD
When I replace 'splash' and 'quiet' in boot menu with 'break=bottom' it boots till I get this error:
.bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
then the (initramfs) line. If I type 'chroot /root nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf' it opens and the driver listed is "i810" which should work. I try that or replace with "vesa" and exit saving changes, if any. Then It boots till I get a blank screen with the X as if it is trying to start x then a blank screen with a cursor which moves but no desktop. When I try "ctrl+alt+F1' instead of terminal I get errors. The thought there would be to run 'sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg'. Anyone know how to fix this???
Question? Is the problem that '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' is incorrect or is it in the error 'bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off'???
Also during boot I get this error:
Warning: Not Loading Blacklisted module ipv6
