Getting video to work w/ KDE RC1

Postby vinoman » Thu Mar 19, 2009 7:32 am

I tried to run the live DVD on two pcs, one with nvidia 6100 and one with 7100. the 7100 video could not show any video and the 6100 show a very distorted screen where I couldn't get to the menu, to do any changes.

What is needed at boot up to get a clear screen?

this could also be a screen problem or if you are using a KVM and switching at the wrong time.
have you tried the second live boot option of using compatibility mode?

Thanks, but I'll wait until Mint 7 comes out and try again. I still like Gnome better and I'll wait until KDE improves with version 4.3.
No hurry, the standard Mint 5 & 6 work great!
