Installation issues / 0710b3 64bit install notes
« on: January 19, 2008, 02:28:35 am »
Hello just finished installing 0710 64 Bit
so far here is what i had to do to get it working (did the CD install for 0710-beta3.)
1. read small text (divers did not display well on my test TV)
2. click on install dvdcss (it did not install it read later for correction)
3. play with the drivers for the card (using the wizard, and switching to a std computer mon that can support 1024x768@65Hz)

to install the lib CSS package you need to use the instructions at
sudo apt-get install -y libdvdread3
sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread3/
making sure you have the requirements installed for libdvdread3 aready
so far now it looks like its working
my specs are
