Mandrake 9.1 on Presario 2500

Hi !

I've got a Presario 2500 (2528EA) and I would like to install the Mandrake Linux 9.1. Unfortunately, the installation is freezing when it detects the firewire and tried to install the driver. How can I install my Linux version without this problem ? Do you use others distributions ?
Thank you very much for your help.

Hi,
Now your Redhat is working OK and you are trying Mandrake ?

It's a harder problem...

Whatesoever, there definetly seems to be a video card detection problem, not only firewire. Try text based install, and have a look at http://www.linux-laptop.net/
where you'll find plenty of resources on this point.

Mandrake is not much sure, check at

They only 'think' it may work.

Good luck.

BTW, plese assign points if our replies seem useful to you. It's just a game of course, but we like this play :]]

Hello!

How about RH 9 it should work better
with the firewire and maybe solve your problem.
