8600GT in SLI

Postby Guardian » Mon Dec 17, 2007 9:43 pm

Hello! First time poster, long time user.

I'm writing because I'm having a bit of a problem with my graphics setup. I am currently using an older version of Mint (3.9, I believe), and I know I have had this problem before, but I don't know how to fix it. My graphics card setup is 2 XFX GeForce 8600 GT XXX Editions in SLI, and whenever I try to use the new live disc, X won't run. Even when I type "startx" from the command, it just dies. I have also tried to use envy on the LiveCD, but nothing seems to work. Any suggestions?

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

It does a little bit, but the problem I am having is during setup. Is there any other way to get it to work or a way to install from command line?
