I now have my new Intrepid rc loaded and I took the lines from it's
grub to start Intrepid and added them to my Hardy grub file. Had to
delete the long uu-whatever and replace it with root (hd0,6). It works fine.
Had to drop back to init 2 since I have no X-Windows and there I
installed joe and changed /etc/X11/xorg.conf to nv and rebooted. it now
comes up with that nVidia half-ass image that is off center and 800x400.
But this is a whole lot better than no X-Windows.
My nVidia devise is a GeForce 6100 which not very old, but not the
latest either. I tried to use Sympatic to find a driver for this but it
was not available on the servers I have set up.
Does anyone know if the Intrepid servers have any nVidia software?
Where do you look? I seem to have a nVidia control panel but it doesn't
seem to do anything. What do you need to do with that?
