Hello Everybody i havent' been here in this forum in a long time. In Any case i've been facing this problem, let me describe :
I've got an Asrock P4i45GV Motherboard with what is known as an AGI slot(advanced graphics interface) what it actually is , is a PCI interface with an AGP look alike slot, something like AGP emulation i am guessing. Now my board also features an onboard graphics card Intel Graphics Extreme.
Now the problem, I am running SUSE 10 and with the onboard graphics the linux seems to run just fine, but as soon as i plug my GeforceFX 5200 128 MB DDR in the AGI, All versions of linux (i mean ALL) seem to crash either at install or at boot time. There is no means to disable onboard graphics card, the only thing that happens when u plugin a card in AGI is that there is no RAM allocated to the onboard card. I can't pin point the problem and i don't remember what the text was printed when linux crashed. I've switched back to windows and windows as always runs happily with the card plugged in. The onboard Extreme Graphics is just too crappy for me.
I've googled this problem and have found that many ppl have faced the same problem with no solution.
So any expert got one ?
