Video - RC 14

Postby deesy58 on Mon Feb 04, 2013 3:33 pm

I recently purchased an issue of "Linux User & Developer" magazine, and it included a DVD with four Linux distros. I installed Linux Mint RC 14 on my older Pentium 4, but it is not useable due to the extremely poor video quality that makes the labels and menus unreadable. Is this a hardware incompatibility, or is there a setting I can change to make it readable? I don't recall offhand what kind of video card is installed, but it is certainly at least ten years old.

I have successfully installed and run other Linux distros on this machine, including Linux Mint 12, Ubuntu, Suse Professional and Open Suse, Knoppix, Debian and Fedora 17, among others.

I am using my Windows machine to post this question. I use a KVM switch to share my monitor and keyboard between the two machines, and have a separate mouse for the Linux box.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
