    Default Graphics problem on BT3 Real

    Problem: Colors seem to be inverted, or on a really low bit setting. EX: Right now this box is black, the area around is green, outside of that is blue and the "User CP" "FAQ" etc.. menu looks red.

    Info: Currently I am on a real install. I have BT installed on sda3. The odd thing is, if I boot from the CD everything is fine, no graphics problem. I compared xorg.conf files from the one created by the CD and the one on sda3, they are identical, some things are in a different order, but all in all they have the same settings. I tried using xorgconfig but then it wouldn't boot into KDE at all. By the way this happens in KDE and FLUX.

    Any ideas?

    Also if any extra info is needed let me know. xconf file below(/mnt/sda3/X11/xorg.conf):

    Default

    Well I have been messing around with it for hours, edit the xorg.conf file a million times. I just don't see what is so different about when it uses the CD and when it boots from the HD?

    When booting from the CD I use the second option (KDE Graphics mode or something) Not sure if that configures it differently. Either way it can't have anything to do with the xorg.conf, cause the same exact one is used for the CD and the HDD.

    I notice when running from the CD it uses 'su --login -c xconf;kdm' could that have anything to do with it?

    I will take any suggestions!


    EDIT:
    ----------
    Still going after this problem. I noticed while reinstalling BT3, after configuring lilo I get this:

    Code:
    Warning: '/proc/partitions' does not exist, disk scan bypassed
    Warning: Unable to determine video adapter in use in the present system.
    Warning: Video adapter does not support VESA BIOS extensions needed for
      display of 256 colors.  Boot loader will fall back to TEXT only operation.
    Added Linux *
    3 warnings were issued.
    How could my video adapter not support VESA BIOS extensions... it is a HD2900 Pro. I thought that it was a pretty universal thing. Any ways to get around that?
