Hi all, hello François

       I must admit that it is not easy to have to re-learn everything. I do 
not know Debian :-/ . I want towards Debian or Fedora. Oss 10 + Yast was so 
easy!

       There are some questions I ask in this list: how to take a screen 
resolution higher IN CONSOLE MODE? My screen seems about 40 lines of 80 
columns at startup instead of the usual ~ 150 columns (kernel parameters at 
boot: vga = 0x31A)!

       Graphics mode was achieved by "startx" and not "init 5" ... How do I 
log in graphic mode (TDM?). While Trinity was started, back on a console 
(Ctrl + Alt + F3, for example), the keyboard is not "listening" except Ctrl 
+ Alt + Del. Fortunately, because my screen did not like the frequencies 
used by XOrg in 1280x1024: black-out! (-: See, Calvin). I guess I have to 
visit XOrg to find out how to do this ...

I can not ask all my questions about Debian on this list. It does not lack, 
however!

       Read you soon!
