I am new to openSUSE but NOT new to Linux
I just bought a Dell Studio 1535 Laptop with the following configuration
Processor - Intel Core 2 Duo (64 bit)
Chip Type - Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family
VGA - Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 (358 available memory)
BIOS Version - A04
Here is my problem:
I installed ubuntu 8.04 on my present laptop (Dell Studio) and i was never able to run it with its full graphics and good resolution. The possible reason (which i learnt from ubuntuforum) was lack of proper support for my graphics card and 965 chip. The end result was I was never able to run ubuntu with a resolution more than 800x600 while i m capable to running 1280x800.
I thought to switch to Fedora Core 9 - but the results were worst than ubuntu - I couldnot even get the 800x600 resolution as the installation resulted always in White Screen of death. Till now I havent got any solution for this problem from the forums.
I tried installing openSUSE and the result was the same - Familiar WHITE SCREEN OF DEATH
I am really want a Linux OS on my laptop as I dont like Vista. Please tell a solution if there exists one for this problem in openSUSE ??
Thanks a lot for reading and any further responses
