I'm trying to install Mint 12 with GTX 590 in the machine. It freezes when the install is detecting devices and says something about pci timing out. latest Ububtu does the same. I then tried installing Mint 10, and that works fine. Then I swapped the GPU for HD 5970, and its working beautifully, recognising multimonitor setup and everything! What on earth is going on???
The 590 is a new video card and has been working under Windows perfectly for a number of days. Is there something in new Mint/Ubuntu releases that doesn't like GTX 590s???
MB - Rampage Extreme II
12G ram (non identical)
I was hoping to upgrade from HD 5970 to GTX 590 or even GTX 590 SLI, it would be a shame if I couldn't use Mint anymore.
