New to the board, but not exactly new to linux

Postby ferro on Sun Sep 05, 2010 11:10 pm

Just wanted to say hello all. My preference so far is Mint KDE 9, currently running the amd64 release. I've played around with slackware and redhat as well as a few other distros in the past. So far I've had to do some research to get nVidia drivers to work in KDE 9. A lot of it I've read from other users and I've narrowed it down to a few steps that I've posted on at least one thread.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
