Linux Mint 16 won't install in IdeaPad Y510P

Postby minhazc on Mon Feb 24, 2014 9:55 am

I have been trying to install Linux Mint 16 in a Lenovo Ideadpad Y510P with NVidia GT755M graphics card with Intel HD 4600.
I have tried following the steps mentioned here http://www.mest-blandat.com/2014/02/ins ... on-on.html
But after installing the NVidia driver, when I try to start X, it says that X is not configured properly.


Tried Ubuntu, which could be booted up and installed with 'nomodeset' at grub.

Anybody had any luck with Linux Mint in Y510P?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hello,

did you receive any errors while installing the drivers?
I wrote that guide, and I've been following it myself a couple of times. Now I'm running Mint on the SSD :)
