See http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Display_Drivers and install the right nvidia legacy driver for your card.

Ok, I have searched for this answer for the last couple days and have come up short.
I am bringing this thread back because it is the closest to my problem.
I am attempting to install LinuxMCE on a HP Desktop with an integrated ATI Xpress 200 video card.
After the installation it boots to the AVWizard: Failed to setup X screen.
I have the computer NIC plugged into my router but it will not update drivers or apt-get update or anything pertaining to the internet. I tried to ping newbielink:http://www.yahoo.com [nonactive] and it came back unknown or something of the sort.

Anyway, problem is, How can I get these ATI drivers off my USB flash drive and onto the computer? I can't find a way to navigate to that drive using the command screen by pressing alt+f2 and I'm kind of stuck at this point.
If I have looked over a page with the answer someone please point me in the right direction as I know how annoying multiple posts of the same question can be, I am a very avid forum user myself.

Thanks

If you know those commands off the top of your head that would be great. I tried to mount it once but I don't know that I had the correct commands.

Also, the file is a .run file. Will it execute and install from what I have or do I need to somehow convert it to a .exe?

Thanks
Tim

Ok, get e terminal session up.
Become root using
Code: [Select]
sudo suwhen prompted enter your linuxmce password for the user linuxmce (you created this at install time)
Next plug in your USB stick. Run dmesg after about 5 seconds to see what device it was assigned:
Code: [Select]
dmesgShould get an output like this:
Code: [Select]
usb 1-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 21
usb 1-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
scsi10 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
usb-storage: device found at 21
usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning
  Vendor:           Model:                   Rev: 0.00
  Type:   Direct-Access                      ANSI SCSI revision: 02
SCSI device sdc: 3948544 512-byte hdwr sectors (2022 MB)
sdc: Write Protect is off
sdc: Mode Sense: 00 00 00 00
sdc: assuming drive cache: write through
SCSI device sdc: 3948544 512-byte hdwr sectors (2022 MB)

 sdc: sdc1
sd 10:0:0:0: Attached scsi removable disk sdc
sd 10:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg0 type 0
usb-storage: device scan complete

You see here the "sdc1"

Now create a dir to mount the stick on:
Code: [Select]
mkdir -p /mnt/stickNow mount the stick:
Code: [Select]
mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/stickOf course use the drive letter sdx
Now cd to that directory:
Code: [Select]
cd /mnt./stickAnd run your app:
Code: [Select]
./application.name.runIf this does not run you may need to change the permissions to executable:
Code: [Select]
chmod +x application.name.run
Thats it.
