Caro Favio, there IS a problem with dynebolic and resolution in the
former 1.x branch, but there is a way of getting round (usually), by
typing Linux vga=791 (for 1024x768 at 16) at boot prompt. More info on

Good question! And many ways of resolving it: One of them [as of my
small (3-year)] experience is to install on hard disk a linux system
with a higher grade of complexity such as Gentoo, which is my current
system. You can find well written docs (italian also) in the gentoo site
( www.gentoo.org ). For some more "hardcore" (!) experience try Linux
- From Scratch (I haven't but lots of persons I know say good things about
it), where you get what the title means (DaCcapo)

I think there could be other new linux users that use either/both
dyne:bolic, ardour or LFS and maybe need help from you. At least that's
how I started so I think it's good the questions are public.
