I just wanted to let Clem and the developers know that the latest edition of Mint (currently Gloria) does not support this old machine out-of-the-box (iso/live cd). All prior releases have supported this machine, but for some reason xorg.conf refuses to configure my legacy ATI 3D RAGE LT PRO 4MB gpu. I believe it has something to do with the lack of ATI support "out-of-the-box." For Felicia and others I needed to run a GParted live cd or other distro, and take note of the xorg.conf file, and then rewrite the code for Mint before starting x: But now with Gloria, I get kernel panics before I'm even able to kill gdm processes and edit xorg. What's up? Maybe think about adding more legacy support to Helena. I don't think I'll have the money for a monster laptop before she's released, so I'd appreciate a peek into this. Why would every other distro I've tried (at least 10) all startup no problem, even Ubuntu, but then have kernel panics with Gloria? Also, FYI, I did try reburning numerous images of Gloria before posting this... and I'm eager to use linux again and I refuse to use any other distro besides Mint. Maybe Debian, but the lack of multimedia support and extra's we get with Mint is ridiculous, and it's not worth spending a month getting Debian up to par and useable.
