I installed Kubuntu 6.10 on a Dell Inspiron 1100 Laptop recently, and
the boot up screens - kubuntu splash logo and the running text(?)
(progress bar?) - cannot be seen.
The live CD for 6.10 has problems with screen resolution and does not
seem to complete even with the Safe graphics mode, I have to use the
boot option F6 and append
As it happens, 6.06 live CD boots normally for the laptop.
With 6.10 how can I influence what screen resolution is used for
initial boot activities?
I know that this particular model of laptop has a problem with the
bios not knowing or reporting the screen size, resolution properly -
even a Dell CD install of XP produces a problem to be solved with
particular driver magic.
Anyway, the normal display is fine because I edited the xorg.config
