Thanks for your replies. I note that a new thread has been started so it seems I do not now need to do that?

Firefox does not start with Athlon XP CPU (Known Issue)

Hi: I wonder whether someone can help me please? I have just installed MX-17 on two 32-bit PCs with Asrock motherboards and AMD XP (1900) CPUs. Everything was supposedly fine upon installation, but immediately after installation Firefox will not run at all and does not give any error message. An att...

Re: GeForce2 MX200 graphics

Hi Leo, Thanks for your reply. I appreciate that the driver for this card is no longer supported by Nvidia, but "supported" does not mean unnecessary change. Once something works stably and reliably it should not be changed unless there is a real necessity. As Engineers, we used to say "If it ain't ...

Re: GeForce2 MX200 graphics

Hi Steve, Thanks for your reply. I agree that is a problem but would suggest that it is one generated by a lack of understanding of standardization and why change needs to be controlled. The earlier driver worked perfectly well and did not need change (see my reply to Jerry hereon). If the x-org ver...

Re: GeForce2 MX200 graphics

Hi dolphin_oracle, thanks for your reply. Well of course you are right, and therein lies the problem. By default the nouveau driver is run, but this only results in a resolution of 1024X768 @ 76.00 Hz, which is way below the capability of this graphics card.

GeForce2 MX200 graphics

Hi, I am a new user of MX16 and like what I have seen so far. However I have an installation problem with my hardware. I have installed MX OK, but cannot get the Nvidia driver to install my graphics card. When I run the utility in the terminal I get the error message that Debian no longer support th...
