bt3+asus eee pc
need some help
recently got a asus eee pc it was on sale what can i say..
anyway problem is every time i boot it compiz doesnt work i push "space" to ignore it which ive seen alot of people on this forum mention
but i get a error
says is your video ram set to low
im assuming its due to the asus eee screen settings
so after a bit of searching
i needed the cubez.izm file from the bt2 edition
so i dl it applied to the right folder
also had to change the syslinux.cfg file
i added the following to top of the file
MENU LABEL BT3 EEE PC 901
APPEND vga=785 initrd=/boot/initrd.gz ramdisk_size=6666 root=/dev/ram0 rw load=901_net_gfx
well i finally got it working
BT3 Graphics mode (Compiz) - Experimental
still doesnt work still get the same video error
Try booting in VESA KDE - this mode is generally compatible with more drivers/chipsets than others.
If that doesn't work, you can also try adding " bt irqpoll acpi=off" to VESA KDE's bootline (by hitting tab).
The 901 has a different graphics card than the 900 or the 701. I dont think it works with compiz. bt3 was designed around the 701 because at the time thats all that was available. I think in the how-to section there is a post on getting kde to boot but I'm not certain the guy ever got compiz working.
well besides that everything works wifi injection etc soooo i tried to install it last bunch of errors
i followed the guide over at i-hacked.com
everytime i get to this point
13. Set up LILO
In order for our BackTrack3 install to boot properly, we need to configure our LILO bootloader. Type the following command:
chroot /mnt/backtrack /bin /bash
(no space between /bin & /bash)
i get an error saying theres no dir
so i ignored it and went on to configure the lilo by doing it manually
get error 15 on start up
well im stumped
well ima keep at it
thanks guys for your support
