Installation issues / Geforce 6600 GT
« on: April 03, 2007, 10:17:12 pm »
Has anyone got the Geforce 6600 GT video card to work in Ubuntu/Linux MCE? If so, what driver did you use? Did you have to do anything special to get it to work?

Installation issues / Configuring screen resolution
« on: April 01, 2007, 07:36:29 pm »
System specifications:

   Panasoinc 42 inch (720P or 1080i) capability
   Abit Kv7 motherboard with Geforce 6600GT video card
My computer is connected to the TV with a DVI cable...pretty basic. Therefore, I should be able to set the screen resolution to 16:9 720P. Here's the problem...when I set the screen resolution to 720P through the wizard or through the Media driector...I cannot get everything to fit on my screen. When I use the arrow keys to align ..I can get the top/bottom correct, but then the left/right are way off screen. If I get the left/right correct, then the top is well below the top and the bottom is weel above the bottom.

Does this mean that the video driver I installed for my Geforce 6600 GT is not working right? I installed the driver off of the NVidia web site. I used the envy install/script to install the driver. Being that I'm a Linux Newbe...I'm not totally sure that it installed without any problems?? All I know is that it appeared to install correct and I get an NVIDIA option on Ubunto. Although it does not let me do let me set the screen resolution in Unbuntu. I would expect that I could set the screen resolution to something other than 640x480 in Unbuntu. 

Any suggestions on how to verify the correct installation of the video driver?

Also, when I run through the LMCE setup wizard..why does it not detect that my computer is connected to my TV via the DVI connection?

Installation issues / Dark Screen After Installation
« on: March 29, 2007, 04:15:58 pm »
I installed the Linux MCE on my:
    ABIT KV7 motherboard ,
    AMD processor,
    Geforce 6600GT Video.

After the successful installation (I think?) ... After reboot and it then goes through some more configuration..when it gets to the video it eventually causes the screen to go blank...never comes back.

Any ideas?
