Help Wanted / Install help needed for ATI Driver $20
« on: June 16, 2007, 06:01:42 pm »
I will paypal you $20 if you can walk me through this:

Anyone ever see this?  Fresh installation of Kubuntu 7.04.  Burned both ISO images on separate CD's (downloaded from this torrent: 

I run the CD with the deb file in it, right-click the deb file and select to install the package.  The Install Linux MCE shortcut appears on my desktop and then after I come through a few questions about mirrors, etc. the CD keeps timing out.  I've rebooted and no luck...

Anyone have any ideas?  Thanks in advance.

I googled and found some useful suggestions but I can't seem to get any commands to work for me from the command line... any tips would be appreciated.

Once the install left me at the command prompt I typed:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorgand got back the response: /bin/sh/: sudo: not found

I also tried another solution:
Code: [Select]
chroot /root nano etc/X11/xorg.conf. and got back the response: chroot: cannot execute nano: No such file or directory

My setup:
dell dimension e510
512MB RAM   
VGA MSI A X800 128M RX800-TD128E
Seems like my MSI card, which I believe is the same as an ATI Radeon x800 is the cause of the problem.

I even tried to pico solution which was to "type pico /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Find your video card, and change driver "nv" to "vesa"." but got the following error: /bin/sh: pico: not found

I'm guessing that I'm just not in the right path to be typing these commands, but I'm not sure where I need to type these commands from.  Any help would be appreciated!
