A major challenge, can anyone help?

It is an Acer Aspire mini desktop with Yuan MPC788 TV card.
How can I make it work on Linux Mint 13?

Re: Poll: Desktop environments

I don't share the view of keeping things as before. Time goes on, life goes on, things are changing...
Hold on to the past is a waste of time in my opinion.

I vote for Gnome Shell
