Default KDE 4 Install Problem

I have a Dell Dimension 2350 (Intel 82845G card). Currently, KDE 3.5.8
(Kubuntu Gutsy) is running very well.

After following the instructions from the Kubuntu website for installing KDE 4
side-by-side with KDE 3 is the time when problems occur. After reboot the
screen is blank with graphic "static" (randomly-colored vertical lines). The
screen is otherwise black and there is no activity. A complete re-install of
Kubuntu is needed (I give my thanks to a separate /home partition!) to
restore a working box.

KDE 4 seems limited in respect to with which graphic cards it will work. Can
anyone with a Dell 2350 and working KDE 4 give word that this robust (old but
clunking along) machine can run the eye-candy of KDE 4?

Thank you,

Bob

These symptoms appear very similar to what people experience with the
following bug (blank screens and vertical colored lines) on launchpad:

[Bug 129910] Re: Blank ttys when using vesafb (vga=xxx)

Are you sure it is KDE4 related?

I am not sure of nothing. If there any users of a Dell 2350 box who have
successfully installed KDE 4, please post your success to this list.

FWIW:
I had trouble installing kubuntu 8.04 with kde4 as well. I don't have a
Dell. I have an asus mobo with just 512mb ram. I attributed my
problems with not enough ram. I gave up and installed ubuntu 8.04. (I
had already installed it on a PIII with 256mb ram so figured it should
work ok.)

Anytime you have problems with an install because of a lack of memory,
then try the alt-install disk.
