504[linux-dell-laptops] Some success with RedHat 6.2 and Dell Latitude CPx
- Mar 31, 2000Just wanted to drop word that without too much effort I've got RedHat
6.2 up and running on a Latitude CPx. Some notes: I was not able to do
the gui install, but the text install worked fine. In the XConfigure
part of the install I choose "Custom" and SVGA 1024x768, which at least
Dell has a new rpm for RedHat 6.2's XConfig available on their web
I used this, but had to reduce the depth to 16 bit to avoid a flicked
on the LCD. Other than that the display works great.
I applied the various sound card rpms which were generated for RedHat
6.1 with no apparent affect: sound still does not work. Perhaps I need
to wait for Dell to compile their driver under 6.2?
