I had installed Mandriva on a friends notebook last week and I really liked how "easy" it was. I really liked how the install went and was so happy I decided to finally purchase a notebook for myself to install Mandriva on it.
Well, here is the sad part. My Mandriva install on my "brand new" notebook didn't go very well. I successfully installed Mandriva but I did receive a configuration prompt for my nVidia video card. The message was something like "Your Nvidia requires proprietary drivers.." and it just lets me select a "series 6" video card driver. When I reboot to GNOME I get a blank screen
after the blue Mandriva boot screen. How can I fix this? Do I need to download the 64 bit version of Mandriva?
My Computer Configuration:
Compaq Presario V6133CL
AMD Turion 64 x2 Mobile150
120GB hard drive
nVidia GeForce Go 6150
