Fedora 10 and SyncMaster 2033
I've got a rather strange problem. Fedora 10 doesn't want to work with my Samsung SyncMaster 2033... And I don't have the feintest idea why. I never had this problem with my old CRT monitor (on the same PC).
Basically what happens is when I try to start the graphical install the screen goes blank, and I can't even open my monitor's settings menu... Like it's on standby, but it's not. I tried different settings, but to no avail. And resorted to a text-based install, so now I've got it installed.
Next problem... It boots into text mode, but that's not the real issue. Whenever I try to start up the X server the same thing happens as with the installation, blank screen.
Could anyone please help me out?
P.S. Sorry, but I'm too lazy to go and download Fedora 12.
