Hey guys, I'm trying to install Mint on a computer of a friend of mine and I get a "Cinnamon crashed, you are currently in fallback mode error" when booting from the setup CD (which I have used for successful installations already).
I never get to see the full desktop with the "Install Linux Mint" icon
The computer has an NVIDIA video card which might have something to do with it (link
I found some other topic on the www, but all concerned completed installations and suggested to update NVIDIA drivers. All is nice, but how do I do that on a computer that doesn't have Mint installed yet ??
Any suggestions on how to proceed?
(processor is Athlon 64 fwiw)
