geforce 6600gt pcie and beryl

Postby Mintnewbie on Tue Oct 02, 2007 8:33 am

Hey,

I have a nvidia geforce 6600gt pcie card, and just installed Mint 3.1 Whenever I start beryl the screen turns grey. How come?

and how can get my 6600 gt card to work? How do I install drivers and such?

I have the same card - no problems with beryl
You don't have the right driver
Did you install the final version?
If so it has an Envy that can install the latest nvidia driver
Just open Envy form the menu and install

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

I think I installed the final version. Isn't celena the final one? How do I know it's the final version? Dumb question... :p I just need to get rid of windows and re-install mint, then I'll try Envy. I'll get back with the result :) Thanx
