Re: How many times did you break your first linux install?

Re: Mint 10 can't find wireless

Well this has been an interesting read. I have just acquired an Acer laptop with a Broadcom chip, and PCLOS detected my wireless connections without having to install any extra drivers, (That was the only disk I had available at the time). But as I like Mint and have done for several years, I downlo...

GForce 7600GT

Can any one explain why neither Daryna or Elyssa will not work properly with my 7600GT card. It only gives me the 800 X 600 resolution, even if I edit the Xorg.conf file to include the correct resolution (1280 X 1024) it will not work, then I get a huge screen that I cannot use. Is there a problem w...

Mint 5 screen resolution.

I have just installed Mint 5 and I am only getting 640 X 480 resolution.
I have a LG1720B TFT monitor and a Nvidia 7600GT graphics card.
How do I force it to set to 1280 X 1024, which is the native resolution for my monitor.

Thanks for that rivenought, the funny thing is it will show everything (it even shows the GPU temperature) but will not show the CPU temperature.

CPU temperature monitor.

Is there a similar Linux program that is the equivalent to Everest or CPUZ to monitor the CPU temperature.
I tried Everest & PC wizard in WINE but they will not work.

Re: 3D acceleration.

I have given up and gone back to Celena.
I have spent 2 days trying to resolve this problem so it looks like giving Daryna a miss.
Thanks for your help.

Automatic updates.

Just a quick question.
When there were updates I used to get an orange circle in the task bar, now this has changed to a padlock, is there any reason for that.

I just booted into kernel -15 and removed 16 using synaptic.

Husse, I did not allow risky updates, they came through automatically, so I never checked what they were.

The problem is solved.
I always use a CDRW to download to and it seems as if they have gone to the dogs, i have had them for 5 years.
As soon as i put it onto a DVDRW all the problems went.
