I am trying to install Kubuntu (Desktop 9.04/AMD 64) on an HP.
Initially, I am trying to install it with wubi just to try it out and see if
things basically work and still preserve an operating Vista (Ugh) to fall
Things went well except for what seems to be a common problem: getting the
screen to function at the full 1920x1080-60Hz configuration (Nvidia card).
Software with the installation fails to have a long enough size list and
searching the net yields and almost infinite list of ways to set things up.
I tried one of them that I thought I understood the best and it killed X11 by
leaving it with no screen. All the methods listed out there are of various
dates and ... .
Does anyone know of a "sure fire", up to date mechanism to solve this problem?
Suggestion of a good up todate web site or would be appreciated, especially
one geared to the less gifted guru. ;-)
