Hello

I using a HP Omnibook XE2, where I have installed, SuSe 6.4 and 7.2.
Now when trying to boot the latest Knoppix 3.3 version from Novermber
20, the boot process starts ok, it seems to detect my graphic card:
Silicon Motion Lynx EM.


Anyhow KDE starts but then the screen goes black and end of game.

I guess the problem is the graphic card.

It is supported by the XFree86 SVGA server,
version 3.3.6. The card is supported by XFree86 4.1.0 and younger
too, you need to choose the siliconmotion driver.


So may be KNoppix just does not chose the right driver?

What can I do?


Thanks
