Newbie has hardware question prior to install...
« on: 2012/02/03, 17:46:06 »
Hoping someone can assist prior to a fresh Siduction install.

Currently use RPM based rolling release distro.

Last week tried to install "Testing" and after install had unrecognizable video at login.

I have used Debian a little in the past but love KDE so want to make the jump to Siduction after I read up on it.

Video and wireless specs below.  Can someone tell me if I will run into video/wireless issues after a Siduction install like I ran into with Debian "Testing"?  Is there anything I can do with your live DVD to prevent a video card or wireless issue in advance?  Thanks.

Your problem with testing/siduction was missing firmware.
