Re: When the Fedora Engineering Manager hates GNOME3…

I tried Fedora 15 with the new Gnome 3 or Gnome Shell desktop,whichever you want to call it. I hate it. It is as different visually from Gnome 2.32 as Unity is. It does not look as though it is even a first cousin of Gnome 2.32. I do understand that "under the hood" it is Gnome but, as it is present...

Re: Compatibility Mode ??

Thank you exploder for taking time to consult.

Are you saying that the 7800 GT is specific to this problem? If so, what does using "compatibility mode" do to by pass the problem caused by the card? Would changing to a 9800 GT solve this?

Re: Stuck @ 2048x1536 with LiveCD

Just to follow up. I hooked up a Viewsonic VA902b 19" lcd to my Atholn 4000+ computed and loaded Mint 8 livecd, in compatibility mode. Still black screen and freeze with normal install. It loaded with a screen resolution of 1280x1024. Could change this to 1020x768 and back again, no problem. The mon...

Re: Stuck @ 2048x1536 with LiveCD

pompom, You may be correct. I have been trying different distros to see what would work. Mint and Ubuntu both default to 2048x1536 as stated in my post. The following livecd"s will not run at all: Mepis,Fedora 12, and Opensuse11.2. PCLinux OS 2009.2, and Mandriva-one 2010 both loaded and ran with no...

I have been trying Mint 7 Main on a 12 year old computer that I dug out of mothballs. Downloaded the iso,burnt the image,tried the LiveCD, installed without a problem. Everything worked, as advertised, out of the box. The old computer is a Dell XPS R450 with an upgraded Celeron 1.2 cpu, a GForce 2 T...
