LifeInTheGrey, make sure directions are correct before posting them.
Is sgfxi in Mint repos, as an apt package? Not the last I heard.
You're also mixing up smxi's front end for sgfxi, where you see the newer/newest options, with sgfxi.
Again, make SURE you actually have done the process yourself before telling others how to do it, otherwise confusion and disorder replaces working solutions.
Unless sgfxi is in the repos, the correct steps are:
- Code: Select all
cd /usr/local/bin && wget -O sgfxi smxi.org/sgfxi && chmod +x sgfxi && sgfxi
You only have to run the first part once, after that sgfxi updates itself automatically.
Using -1 40 is only needed if you run multiple kernels and want to make sure all of them have the current driver module installed, so you can boot into any of them at any time.
For most users, running: sgfxi
alone is all that's required, if the driver is current version, that simply rebuilds the driver module using the already downloaded driver package, if it's not current, it downloads the latest driver, which is what you usually want, and installs it.
