Although automatic hardware detection has come a long way since earlier
versions of Linux, perhaps the following problem/solution would be
worthy of comment from Linux users.

My older PC (Windows XP) has a peculiar monitor connected to it, namely
an LCD-TFT type used as both TV Monitor / VGA pc monitor, with 9-pin VGA
connector, 24-bit colour, 1280 X 1024 resolution (Medion TFT-2055). On
installing openSuSE  11.0 on it, the monitor was wrongly detected as an
analog type so that on boot up the screen was black with an "out of
range" message on  it. To make matters worse, on trying other boot
options nothing helped and to boot up in text mode (no X Window) on the
prompt for User name / password, the User name could be entered as root,
but when the next prompt (password) appeared there was no keyboard
response at all. As a result I was unable to login.

Forgive me for asking, but what does this have to do with Evolution?
