, your model of GPU (video card) is quite old and is not supported by the closed-source AMD Catalyst for Linux
driver. (The closed-source driver is also known as FGLRX and the package is ati-drivers.) Therefore you need to try the open-source Radeon
driver. The package is xf86-video-ati.
Boot the SL (Sabayon Linux) LiveDVD and, when you reach the boot menu, press F5. Then add the following text at the end of the list of kernel boot parameters and press the Enter key.
- Code: Select all
Hopefully the LiveDVD should then boot correctly and you should be able to install SL to your hard drive.
