Re: 8500GT Black Screen Why Mint 11?

Well Still No Luck getting Drives to work cant find anymore info on the issue :(
I guess the 8500gt is just not a good choice, maybe a new driver will be made ( i don't know)

I still can run Mint in my Virtual Box until a solution comes about or maybe I'll try something else
any ways Stay cool :)

Re: 8500GT Black Screen Why Mint 11?

Oh Okay so I guess i will go with the experimental until there is an upgrade to the other drivers, When it comes to ATI cards is there the same issue?
Also I was looking at the computers over at System 76 They use Nvdia Video cards, what drivers are they using? or do they make their own?

So its not that its some kind of better technology, but rather a tool of choice, used by many, just because they enjoy using it Okay i ...
