Downloading attempts failed

Postby keljaden on Sun Jun 27, 2010 12:00 am

Okay, first I tried to just get LM8 FB via http from a random mirror and it failed about 80% of the way through...
Then I decided to torrent...I have restarted and everything I can think of, even turning off my firewall, and I can't get further than like 83.5% ish.

What could be causing this error?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You might want to try downloading from another mirror. As for the torrent...well, maybe there aren't enough seeders?

well I restarted my comp and tried a different mirror...then they both seemed to work...so when I finally got everything install on my old computer, it seemed that it didn't want to detect my Nvidia card...This puzzles me as all of the other Mint distro's did...I sad.

Have you went into mintMenu > Control Centre > Hardware Drivers? And it doesn't detect your Nvidia card?

All right, then open up a terminal (mintMenu > Terminal) and paste the output of the following commands, here:
Code: Select all
inxi -F
lspci -v
