When installing Mageia (1 or 2) on an Acer eMachine e525, and you end up with
a black screen:
Reboot with the install DVD, and go for "Update Mageia n"
When the install reaches the post-install config step:
Go to Bootloader => Configure => Next
You are now shown the various entries of the Grub menu and can modify them one
by one; just do that, adding acpi_osi=Linux to all the Mageia lines.
If you know your machine has this problem, you can do all this as part of the
original Mageia install process, saves time ;-3)
Be aware that for reasons unclear, the Fn keys for more or less backlight are
inverted: Fn + ^ for less light, Fb + v for more.
In order to rally people, governments need enemies.
They want us to be afraid, to hate, so we will rally behind them.
And if they do not have a real enemy,
they will invent one in order to mobilize us.
