I am havinng trouble booting the FC5 test 3 DVD and hope someone might be able to help with my problem.
My hardware set-up is as follows:
* Dell Dimension 3000 (Celeron D 2.8 Ghz, 1Gb RAM, 2x 80Gb HDD)
* Integrated Intel Extreme Graphics
* PNY NVIDIA FX-5500 PCI card
The integrated graphics are disabled in the BIOS as I want use the PCI graphics card instead.
When I boot the DVD, the messages scroll up the screen as expected until the point where the monitor and graphics card are detected. The problem is that the integrated graphics are being detected, not my NVIDIA graphics card. As a result, I receive an error stating 'GTK warning - cannot open display'. The DVD stops booting at this point and I have to restart the PC.
Having installed other distributions successfully on this PC (SUSE 10.0 and 10.1 beta for example) I know that this should be possible. However, those instalations were not smooth when it came to detecting my graphics card, and some manual intervention was required to get the installation done. However, the fact was that SUSE does install, whereas the FC5 DVD won't even get past the initial boot.
I'm wondering if there are any kernel options I can issue when booting the DVD in order to overcome this problem, but I've no idea which ones. So, if anyone has any hints or tips I could try then they'll be most welcome!
