I am some unlucky b@astard when it comes to Linux. EVERY time that I've tried to install it (in various different flavours...) something has gone horribly wrong... This time, its Mandrake Linux 6.1 and the problem is with my graphics. My graphics card is a bog-standard Cirrus Logic 5446 PCI chipset (2mb). I'm asked to probe or manually set up my graphics card during installation. When i try the "probe" option, it detects something like 640x480 8-bit. (On repeated attempts it detects stupid modes like 1024x768 32-bit, which the card is incapable of) When I try to manually set up graphics modes (which i did correctly ), it says that it worked, then when it boots into KDE the graphics are all fúcked again.
Any idea wtf is wrong with it now??
