View Full Version : [ubuntu] IBM e74 with radeon 2400 xt video card

Hello all.

I have a friend who has been trying to install the Ubuntu 8.10 live cd, but when the cd has finished booting and tries to launch X, the monitor displays an out of range message.

Obviously, Ubuntu has tried to switch to a video mode that the monitor, an IBM e74 with a Radeon 2400xt video card, cannot support. Any way to get around this, some obscure livecd boot option? Thanks in advance.

I know there's a choice you can make when booting off the livecd, a low resolution option or something, I just can't recall what it is. Perhaps ubuntu has an issue with the ati video card?
