OK, my laptop is a compaq presario 1692 - amd k6-2 500mhz, 192 mb of ram, and a 6.4gb hd. The distro install ok. And then starts the problems:
1- splash never appear, and spend 6 minutes to get gdm, but if i remove splash and acpi (my laptop only works ok with apm) from grub, its spend only 1:30 to get gdm up. So why splash doesnt work?
2- i cant shutdown correctly the laptop, if i press exit, never appear the window where i choose what to do, and if i open and xtem window and tipe: "sudo init 0", the laptop start shutdown but dont finish, it hang and a lot of big caracters with colors appear on screen, so i need to power off by pressing the power botton.
3- i cant get a tty console from X, if i type ALT - F1(or F2, F3, etc..) i get a black screen, so to back to x i press CTRL - ALT - F8 and back ok. SO the only mode to get console is with xterm. Why?
I have to say that i run debian etch in other partition and its run ok, so the laptop have no problems.
So, can anybody help me to solve this issues?
Maybe i need to recompile the kernel??
thakns, and sorry about my english
