I have spent the best part of a day configuring my Mint 14 install on my MacBook Pro (I got it for iOS development but want to use Mint for everything else because it is,
by far, my preferred OS).
Now I'm going to try to install the proprietary nvidia drivers. This trashed about 4 mint installs a few days ago, due to saying 'the x server failed to start'.
I'm going to try again but would hate to lose all my work. How do I go back to Nouveua after a failed nvidia install? I guess it should be manageable once I have
the X server running, but how do I do that? I will try to set the driver to 'fbdev' but will report back (via Mac OS
) if that doesn't work!
