I downloaded the software and burned 4 iso images last night. 3 of them from a server in the US and one in Germany. The image from Germany worked. It may have been Dvd burner related issues with my wifes computer. The Iso burned and worked fine with my system.
Now for the problem of getting the Nvidia video to work. . . .
I ran 'Envy' and the error message I got had something to do with the software paths not being compliant. (Maybe this is because of Xorg ? I did a 'dpkg-reconfigure xserver.xorg' hoping this would fix the issue. I went through the steps and it took all of my info. It too didn't have any affect on my video.
Both steps above initally rendered my computer useless and I've reinstalled the software now (my 4 time) and am leaving it in the default 'nv' configuration until someone helps me get it configured properly for my fx5200 Nvidia card.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. . . .
B.T. W. I had 7.04 Kubuntu installed earlier in the evening and finally got Nvidia
to work on that. . . .nothing like the 'Envy' I was use to in Linux Mint.
(I did sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-new and sudo -dpkg-reconfigure xserver--xorg) this got the driver running in Kubuntu. . . Also I might add that
the graphics in LinuxMint with the new Menu is terrific and the actual disk install seemed twice as fast as Kubuntu. . . .
