was curious if anyone encountered something similar. i have drake 9.1. had no problems with it on my laptop and on my ibm PL300. i recently put together a spare box to only run linux. i run through the install and it basically gets about 5-7 minutes past installing packages, then i lose video, get a black screen with just the power on the pc.
i figured what the fuck, ill give redhat 8 a go. same issue.
i know the HD is good as i just tested it with WD lifeguard tools. i have an agp ATI rage 2C card. a pci SMC nic card but thats about it with hardware. its a 300 watt PS also, default settings in bios, no o/c.
i was debating installing windows to see if its a linux issue but i might try that tomorrow. any ideas?
