i'm new to linux and still very prone to crashing my system every time i tinker with my settings.
this time it's with my video settings. i installed nvidia-glx-legacy and enabled it. now i cant log in to the X server.
prior to this, everything worked fine, but my 3d acceleration, which i hoped will work after installing the legacy driver. i have GeForce4 440 MX installed.
before moving to mint (i love mint!), i was using pclinuxos-2007, and was able to use 3d effects. decided to use mint because of it's new-user and all-users' friendliness.
i'd normally re-install when faced with difficult probs like this one, but i cant learn linux if i turn tail every time, can i?
i hope to become a power user with your help some day!
thank you all.
note: i was able to remove the driver i installed(nvidia-glx-legacy) through the command line, but still cant use x.
