Re: Can't disable nouveau

Answer 'Yes' at the modprobe file question, and you are done (on Mint, does not work on Fedora). And make sure gcc (from software/package manager) is installed. Yes and if that dont work you can do this drastic method: sudo mv /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nouveau.ko /lib/...

Re: [FIX] "Black Screen Of Death" when log out to KDM

Quick Note: You will want to be sure you REAPPLY this change AFTER EVERY UPDATE from mintUpdate. The KDMRC file is getting overwritten from some source I have not tracked down, and this disables my XDMCP every time... so I am in the habit of of after any time I allow updates to immediately go and r...

Hi, I searched the forums but wasn't able to find a post for this specific issue. I think it's KDE releated because (1) on Mint 10 gnome I can connect to the internet smoothly, (2) I had similar issues with other recent KDE distros, like Chakra 2011.02, OpenSUSE 11.4, Pardus 2011 (unsolved).
