Problem: After installation and update of all packages and drivers,
the machine reboots when the GUI is started.
Solution: Run Xconfigurator and choose a resolution from the 8-bit
I had chosen 24-bit color knowing that under M$Windoze I had gotten
great color and resolution out of that graphics card in spite of it
memory (1 Mb) . Even the 16-bit choices kept the problem alive.
Choosing an 8-bit resolution stopped the spontaneous reboot. We
wasted a week (between classes) on this problem. There was nothing
in the Dell knowledge base about it. Very Frustrating. If there is an
updated driver for the card, I haven't found it either.
