If you have that version of lmde it is strongly suggested you don't attempt an install. A newer version has been released. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Here is the link to the newer 201101 release LMDE 201101 32-bit re-spin to read all about it, and also has the link to the iso.
Below is some tips for the adventurous to attempt an install, not recommended for linux beginners as the possibility of destroying grub is likely.
Thanks to Eric Jones, for his hard work in helping solve this issue
And to Justin for refining the fix as the original didn't work for me .
Place cd in computer, switch on, at the grub prompt:-
Down arrow to "Compatibility mode"
Hit Tab key to edit
the line will read something like this
/casper/vmlinuz boot=live xforcevesa initrd=/casper/initrd.lz and a heap more , NOTE the word "xforcevesa" after that insert the word "nomodeset" , without the quote. Hit enter to boot the dvd. It will be very sluggish, but you will be able to install.
then boot it , this is only a temporary fix in order to boot.
Once you have install lmde , (here my installer stalled on installing grub, so the rest is untested, except that Eric managed it)
On the first boot up, you must edit grub again, hit the letter 'e' to do it.
with the above code, at the line that ends with "ro quiet", affix " -- nouveau.setmode=0"
When you have booted the install, open a terminal and
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get remove xserver-xorg-video-nouveau
That will permanently get rid of Nouveau from lmde. Reboot if you wish to install a nvidia driver
Installing your Nvidia driver ,
For nvidia drivers visit http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx , enter your card into the search and click search.
Then download the driver.
Then open a terminal in the directory the driver is in.
Code: Select all
sudo sh NV*.run --no-x-check
This is tricky, as a few errors popup that can throw you right off, treat it as a game, and try to get to the next level by answering the ?'s right, it's not a simple yes yes install
Then reboot and your new driver should be working
