i installed kubuntu on my old pc from an alternate live cd.
installation went fine but after rebooting after install screen shows sync out of range message. i tried googling solutions for the problm but none of them worked for me as i could not even log in to make the changes indicated in them.
my specs are as follows
processor:athlon xp 2000+
gpu FX 5200
mobo: 7vm400mrz gigabyte
monitor samsung syncmaster 773s 17"
PS: i could not install "grub" or "grub 2" during install had to up using LILO
my monitor can output 1024x786 at 75mhz and with nvidia drivers installed the list of options is even more but that's on xp as os. i would like to mention though ubuntu 9.10 installs with absolutely no problems and no issues with screen res either.
