i had previously done some messing around with a c180 and at one time
out how to install but have since lost my notes.
i have a c180 with an hp A4071B graphics card installed in GSC slot 3
recognized as HPA4071B_LZ
i know i previously had to enter "video=stifb:off" in the palo:
default when i choose to interact with ipl on boot as parameters to
if i accept default it gets past that message indicating a problem with
but the screen goes black although it looks as if the monitor is still
i.e. green light not a yellow one.
i am using the debian 3.0r1 disk as my boot disk.
i recall the last time i got the install to work i got a penguin in the
but graphic install never worked and i had some difficulty with the x
starting. any help on reinstallation would be appreciated i.e.
to the parameters on boot to get back to installing.
thanks in advance and sorry for regressing.
