Ive been successfully running both Mandrake, then redhat on my I5000
650GT machine, and recently decided to make the progression towards
Debian. I settled on installing Debian 2.2r2.
Ive managed to get a barebones system ie text prompt system running
but I would appreciate any help from anyone running Debian on an
So I have a few queries:
1) During installation I selected the following modules to install as
recommended by the oreilly text "Learning Debian/GNU Linux":
I was wondering what other users have chosen as the correct modules
to install in the kernel and I was wondering if anyone out there
could provide a list for which modules they used on their I5000 i.e.
how do I get framebuffer support?
2) When trying to include the lp module I get an error, I think I
need to specify additional parameters. For Debian users with an I5000
what additional parameters did you specify for the lp module?
Any help with the above queries would be greatly appreciated!
Best Regards and Happy Hogmanay,
