Problems in video playback.. and reg grub editing..

Postby prasadden » Sun Jul 15, 2007 2:58 am

I've just installed the Linux Mint Cassandra edition in my desktop, which has XP Pro as the primary OS. Now, this distro is looking very good. But I have a small problem. When I play videos (be it any type of file, in any player) the display looks too bright aand washed out.. I have an Intel 845GVSR MoBo with onboard graphics.. What is the problem here..? Sound works good..

And I would like to edit the grub so that it does not display the memtest and the other kernel options.. How do I do that..??

There seems to be (or have been) a driver issue with 845GVSR. Other than that I have no answer, but check this out:
As for grub - you should NOT remove the other options - one day you want to log in with the older kernel or make a memtest.
To do this edit your grub/menu.lst
You could remove all memtest but one.
Move the other options down the list and you won't see them without the use of the arrow keys
I agree that it is annoying with all these options...
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
