Please help !
I have an AMD system (AMD Sempron(tm) Processor 3400+) with an ATI Radeon RV370 graphics card. I found a topic where it was stated this card is fully supported with Mint 13.
I could not boot the live DVD normally so followed the instructions here (viewtopic.php?f=46&t=122257&view=unread#unread
) and added the command "nomodeset xforcevesa" to the end of the "linux" line. This got me in and I installed Mint 13 (overwriting my 100% functional, but no longer supported Mint 10......)
Upon reboot after installation, I was unbable to boot (the display went blank and eventually said "no input detected", so I booted in via the same route as above - this gets me in and all is not well - the graphics card is not functioning correctly.
In System settings: Details: Graphics, the driver is "VESA:V380" and the Experience is "Fallback".
Please does anybody know how I can make the system actually use my graphics card correctly ?
I have installed some ATI graphics drivers from the software centre and now when I boot, the resolution is better (if I edit grub, the text is much smaller) but I get dropped to a prompt and a message pops up telling me the X server has terminated and the log file ends with the line No displays detected.
Please help me !!! I really want Mint 13 to function properly - I am very keen to try Cinnamon (that's the ISO I've installed from [32 bit, obviously]).
Any help at this stage would be *so* good !
