Description matrixnan 1999-12-05 03:48:39 UTC
Yikes alot of problems ok I did a custom install with dual operating
systems.  Linux is on the second hard drive but that is not the problem
:).  The problems are as follows:  in installation the auto file system
detection did not work for vfat file system I had to manually go into
linuxconfig to change but then it worked, the graphics card was detected
but the 32 bits was not supported even though the card can do 32 bits and
the system gave it as the default and the message that times down saying if
you can read this message click ok appeared alright and I clicked it but
when I went in linux kicked me out into comand line using Xconfigurator I
was able to change the card to 24 bits and that solved the problem, the
printer did not and when I went in to manually configure it it still would
not work, I tried every I choose my printer HP660C and tried every lp (lp0,
lp1, lp2) and none of them worked it is a local printer and I had the
settings from Red Hat 6.0 that worked but not now,  the biggest problem of
all Linux Red Hat 6.1 crashes 100% of the time when I HALT the computer
right when it says shutting down all devices right before it says power
down it gives a screen full of error byte code.  Thats all of them if you
need more information just email me and I can give more details.

Thank You For Your Time,

Nate Nesler

Probably this is an AMD processor?

Crash on halt is due to a BIOS problem; you might try updating your BIOS.

To fix the printer, add:

alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc

to /etc/conf.modules.
