well on my laptop im getting a problem where when i select what to boot it loads those two files and then i get a blank black screen. nothing else happens it just hangs there. now i dont think anyone else on this forum has the problem cuz when they try and help me fix it they say to type shit in the command line. when it doesnt get far enough to give me a command prompt. but i tried this anyways followed the guide completely 3 times redownloading everything everytime. and yet nothing. any tips?
acer extensa 4420
ati radeon x1250
amd64 duo core
3 gigs ddr ram
Can I ask if I need any extra packages in Ubunto to make the destribution? For some reason I can't make it and I have already tried it in Slax with the same result.
It would be nice if you could tell us if you did the distibution in the backtrack console? :o
For some reason I cannot get the drivers to make the lgz package correctly, it acts like it is making them but when it finishes, theres nothing there... Could someone maybe upload their lzm's for me so I could load them into the modules? I'd really appriciate it...

One other note, to get up and running, I had to edit the xorg.conf file (sda3/changes/etc/X11/xorg.conf - YMMV) for the card to be recognized. I added the following to the end of the file:
After a reboot, all was working great. Thanks again for the great tutorial!Code:
LOL !!!!! Why are you here asking questions like that :DQuote:

Cant't someone upload all the moded files to rapidshare or something so its quick a painless. As im quite new and a download and copy files over to USB then login and type would be alot more useful thx :)
Tisti: Ubuntu has very nice user documentation, I don't know why would you want to seek refuge here.
morenoh149: I am sure the hard drive install still allows one to use vesa option. I cannot see why not.
Undiluted: There is a package called ati.lzm.
