Flash Player 7 Wrecks my Savage video drivers for Debian

  1. Hello all, I've been trying to get this Compaq 5700t to run Debian, and it does it well until I install Flash Player 7. Then this happens:

    in gnome and KDE, in Mozilla, Firefox and Konqueror

    Any ideas? Would an older version of Flash work? --if I can find one, that is.

    I'm pretty sure it's a Savage 4 video card, and I'm using the generic savage driver that's a choice in the Debian install. Generic vga driver doesn't work. Vesa driver works well until you logout, at which point the screen is garbled, and hard reboot is necessary.

    I really appreciate any help you all can give me.
