    In her heart!
    I use a p4 on a Gigabyte 8IDML motherboard. I have a SIS 305 32 mb graphic card.
    I recently installed Fedora core 10 linux. It didn't identify my graphic card and the installation finished in text mode! Now, I am unable to start Gui in linux.
    Can anyone help me!
    Plz! :cry: :cry: :cry:

    check the net i downloaded the drivers for my friend a few months agoyou get a tar file then to install it the same ./configure
    make
    make install
    what i suggested was a compromise settings that does not use the cards power etc.
    i think the driver you have must be a .rpm that is compiled for a specific kernel
