373[linux-dell-laptops] Re: ATI on CPx H500GT EASY ANSWER!!!
- Feb 12, 2000First, download the i75olnxf.rpm file from the Dell drivers web site
closest to you.
From LILO you can write
> linux vga=791or just add it to your /etc/lilo.conf file.
I don't know how much the users here know obout Linux so here is some
more help. If you copied the rpm to a floppy you might have to mount
the floppy drive as well and then access it. To do this..
mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
The rpm-file you just got at the Dell pages just gets forced in using
the following command.
rpm -ivh i75olnxf.rpm --force
