I've nearly used 2 days, and here's where it's at:
I made one of my USB-pens bootable, and copied Ubuntu 7.10 onto it. Then I booted the D 610, and it slowly loaded the OS. Why I used a USB-stick, is because I thought maybe the dvd-drive was defect or something. Half way into the boot-process, I got bored, and turned it of. Yes I know that may cause problems but... I took another USB-stick, with ultimate boot cd on, an fired up the computer. Now the speed and everything was ok. I used one of the wiping tools on the stick to wipe/clean everything from the harddrive. In the PC's BIOS I loaded the default failsafe settings, trying to modify the amount of RAM the graphic card should have. When the wiping process was finished, I inserted the Ubuntu-stick and started again. Now everything was completely different. The computer seemed faster.
After installing Ubuntu 7.10, I made another stick with LinuxMint on, and repeated the installation. With a bit of success. I think it may have been some old crap on the harddrive. When I install a new linux system, I always use Guided, use the hole disk
choice. Using that I thought the disk was completely erased. Anyone had the same experience?
When Linux Mint was installed, and the login screen appears, it's not loaded at once. It looks like its loaded step-by-step. Then I started to think:"Hmmm. Maybe theres something with the graphic card?" Onto Google and I find this:http://www.kcore.org/?menumain=4&menusub=2
I've tried to edit the xorg.conf file, replacing intel
, but it doesn't seem to have any effect. How do I change the driver?
