I'm having a problem which may not be solvable, but wanted to try asking here nevertheless. I installed the latest version (2012.08) to my external hard disk; installation worked without difficulties. However, I can't boot the installed system to get to the configuration stage. My computer has a Radeon HD 6600M video card. Because of some special circumstances in the way it boots up, it will work
- with fglrx drivers and very new kernels (>= 3.5) or
- with the free radeon drivers.
My problem is that pclinuxos comes with kernel 3.2.18, so no fglrx for me, and in the kernel config, it has
# CONFIG_DRM_RADEON_KMS is not set
so the free radeon drivers won't work. So I'd have to either recompile the 3.2.18 kernel with RADEON_KMS set, or compile and install a brand new kernel, both of which is difficult if I can't boot into the system... Can anybody think of any solution? Is there any generic video driver I could try? Or any other workaround?
