Re: [Open again] Update broke X -> no drivers available

exactly how did you installed the nvidia binary? I installed a whole lot of programs via aptitude, so I didn't exactly pay attention to which dependencies it installed along, I only noticed it when nvidia-kernel-dkms was build and mythtv was the only grpahic-related program I could think of that co...

Re: [Closed, not solved] Update broke X -> no drivers availa

but the solution (reinstalling dkms) obviously didn't work for me. because the driver was not installed (properly) with dkms and furthermore you were jumping between methods (direct d/l, dkms); now in that system (if we still go in time) the only chance is http://code.google.com/p/sgfxi/ (cleans th...

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-kernel-dkms 
and reboot
Yeah, I tried that, like a dozen times. Didn't work. With neither kernel.

I now resorted to doing a fresh install.

[Open again] Update broke X -> no drivers available

Hi there, today I decided to update my LMDE system to Update Pack 4, including the new kernel 3.2. Unfortunately it seems this completely broke my x-server since it now refuses to recognize any graphics drivers installed. I've got a Nvidia 9800GT installed and so far used the proprietary driver down...

Re: POLL: Are you tracking new Mint Repo or "Debian Testing"

Mostly I am tracking LMDE Latest on my notebook and LMDE Incoming on my desktop. But sometimes I get impatient and I do one or two updates from Debian testing on my notebook. As my internet connection at home is really slow, I don't really like those new "update packs". For me, it is more practical ...

Re: Things That Would Make It Look Better

1. When you turn the volume up with the key board the big thing that pops up in the middle of the desktop looks bad the little one that Ubuntu went to looks a lot better I'm sure it would not take much to fix this. I rather like the pop up being in the middle of the desktop, and I wouldn't call it ...

Re: Hardware Drivers Application

Great idea, Ikey, just please don't put it in the cloud as DrHu suggested above. I really don't need other people knowing my computer configuration.

Re: root partition LUKS encryption possible?

Thanks for your answer.
I think, I will wait a few weeks and see if it works then.

Otherwise, probably a normal Debian installation with an upgrade to LMDE should also work, don't you think?

Greetings,

root partition LUKS encryption possible?

Hi there, I would like to encrypt my root partition during the installation progress of Linux Mint Debian Edition. Is that possible? I already tried this but it doesn't seem to work. During installation there is always a warning 'low on disk space' for the root filesystem displayed, despite the root...
