Briefly my tale of woe is this.
I have a Dell Inspiron Laptop 8000 with Mandrake 9.1 installed and
The linrad install went well but the program does not produce a display.
After investigation I have concluded that svgalib is not compatible
with the video chip and folks who are involved with svgalib
development offer no hope that this problem will be solved.
Unless I hear from this group to the contrary it seems that if I want
linrad (and I very much do) that I will have to buy a whole new
computer, sound card(s) monitor and all. I would prefer a laptop but
could go desktop and the machine would be dedicated to running linrad.
My question is what are the preferred combination of products or
specifications that would ensure that I don't run into the same kind
of incompatibility again.
For the moment let's assume an ideal and that the cost is not an
issue (at least I can start from there HI )
Obviously if anyone has solved this problem I would appreciate
hearing from them soon.
