I'm working with Linux Mint Felicia 64bit, and a NVIDIA Geforce 9600GT graphics card and would like to use nvtv for watching divx, mp4, mkv etc. on my TV-screen (S-VHS).
Since nvtv doesn't recognize my graphics card, I thought perhaps the nvidia-glx-177-driver isn't the best choice, and wanted to install the original driver by NVIDIA.
But the install process needs to be done outsied of the Xserver, so is it possible, to boot the system in text mode once in a while for maintenance purposes?
I'm also open for suggestions how to solve the nvtv-issue otherwise ...
