Re: 1680x1050 Nvidia X server

Thanks for the reply

I've got a geforce 8200 card but a gforce 6200 driver installed. I downloaded the driver form link you supplied but can't figure out how to install it. I believe the 6200 driver does support 1680x1050 anyway.

I used the other link but got nowhere with it.

Thanks

Re: Mount point

"sudo mount -t ext2 /dev/sdb1 /media/device1" Did that and got this: "user1@ThinkCentre-M52 ~ $ sudo mount -t auto /dev/sdb2 /media/device1 mount: /dev/sdb2 already mounted or /media/device1 busy mount: acc...

Re: Mount point

Hi I followed your instructionsand got this: "mount: you must specify the filesystem type" I think the disk is ext2 but could be 3. So I tried "sudo mount /dev/sdb /media/device1 -t FILESYSTEMTYPE ext2" And loads of gobbledygook came up but disk still wouldn't let me write to it. So I tried to unmou...

Mount point

I have an ext3 (or 4, I can't remember) usb HDD that I want to connect to my PC and copy files on to, but I need a mount point. I have googled mount points but can't find a simple step by step guide for newbies. Could anyone steer me in the right direction please?

Thanks
