Subject description: How to get working with Dell E771P CRT monitor Lupu 5.28
 

I just got a new (for me) tower unit. It has an Athlon II X2 240 processor, 2GB RAM and a Radeon X700 Pro video card.
The issue is trying to run Lupu 5.28. It says the probe doesn't work and even if I choose a CRT screen off the list, X does not start.
I tried doing a PFIX=RAM boot but that didn't make any difference. Question

There is a video driver package available in the 5.28 ppm, Xorg_High-1.1-Lucid. It has a lot of drivers, and may be the solution to your problem.

Thanks Tallboy. What I did was use the vesa driver then use Package Manager to obtain Xorg_High.
After that, its very good
