Re: xorg? video driver?

Thanks again, everyone, for the help. And apologies for the delay in responding. I had to go to the hospital on Saturday to get stitches in my hand after an accident with a utility knife, which cut down on my keyboarding. Anyway, I installed 17.3, and while I understand that it may have been unneces...

Re: xorg? video driver?

Thanks for the help so far. I'm trying to install 17.3, but have had two issues so far. The first is installation hanging after the files copied over from the dvd, right when it says "installing system." I googled around and removed the ubiquity part, and tried again. Now it seems to be hanging at "...
