Hi all, Just took the plunge and did a fresh install of Gloria. I tried to install alongside Mint 6 in case things went wrong and they did (Black screen)
Although mint 5 and 6 had a boot up menu where you could get up and running and signed in to download the new driver for an Nvidia card this seems to have disappeared in mint 7 oops.
Then I really took the plunge and installed onto the whole disk thinking the confusion may be the two systems not working together. From that point I at least managed to get into the sign on screen via an Ubuntu page which invited me to use a generic Ubuntu driver.
Having then installed the new Nvidia version 180 driver. Yes you guessed it, that's correct after the re-boot nothing.
I have gone back to using the previous driver which I used with mint 6 and it works hurrah.
Sorry Nvidia your new driver version 180 won't run Gloria on my system. It cant find my card. Either that or Linux can't find the new driver.
Anyway I digress.
Any of you having trouble getting your graphics cards working just might find the older driver still works for you as well,
It is version 173
Apologies if I am putting this in the wrong place. Please don't moan at me just move it. But still let me know what I did wrong.
All the best to all and thanks to the team Ralph
