Cannot get GUI on any linux distro (live, install gui nor post install) 8800GTX
Hey guys, I am trying to install fedora core 9, or more importantly anything on my machine and i just cant get a gui at all. I have a 8800GTX EVGA Card PCIEx16 and i just cant get it to do anything other than these given situations...
Live CDs: loads at init 3
Anaconda install GUI: fails over to text
Post text install driver update: no change
When I go to init 5 on any occasion then i get a black screen w/monitor on and no further response. I can ssh back into the box if linux is installed w/no gui but if i init 3 the box again then the box stays unresponsive and i have to reset.
Please be kind if i have missed an existing thread on this one, it seems that it would be a common problem but i can find almost no matching scenarios where the solution helps in any way.
