FC2 install - Radeon 9200 fails
I'm doing a clean install of FC2-64 on an empty HD. All goes well - Anaconda goes through its graphic install routine, picks up my Radeon 9200 g/card without complaint. No error messages. It doesn't recognise my Samsung monitor, but I set it to the right resolution and refresh rates. Install finishes, and I re-boot, but all I get on-screen is a left-right smear of pixels, and the machine freezes. up.
I've tried another monitor, and that results much the same - this time a blank screen and freeze.
I've studied the discussions re. Radeon graphics cards and drivers, but it all seems to relate to getting the 3-D functionality to work. All I want is a 2-D monitor. I saw a post that said that FC2 would operate my card ok in 2-D.
What seems a bit strange is that Anaconda produces a graphic screen, but the final install doesn't. Can anyone help? Do I need to install the ATI drivers, replace X0rg with XFree or whatever and, if so, how do I even get a command prompt to start making config changes.
Thanks a lot.
