    Re: HOWTO: Latest NVIDIA drivers

    My card is not in that list. It's a GeForce2 MX 100/200, which is supported. However, it doesn't matter, since every version I've used in the last six months has had this bug. I can't enable hardware...

    Re: HOWTO: Latest NVIDIA drivers

    I'm having the "random freezeups when RenderAccel is turned on" bug. yes I followed the guide, but since it was really bad I rolled back my drivers to an old version (I only have a 32mb GeForce2) and...
  3. Re: How to dual boot Ubuntu and Windows XP without changing the Windows MBR

    Also, if your BIOS supports it (most should,) if you have two drives and Linux is on the secondary drive (like I have,) you can install GRUB on the secondary drive and then simply set your BIOS to...

    Re: HOWTO: Latest NVIDIA drivers

    Is there any way to enable hardware rendering without potentially randomly killing the x session? This was one of the reasons I went back to windows last time, because what use is emulating games...

    Heh, I used to use it until I realized how slow it made my computer... But it's still a nifty effect :)

    Whoa, I just wanted to post to say that I haven't used Ubuntu since about a month after I originally posted this but I'm amazed it's still around :D Finally gone back to it, though.

    Re: HOWTO: Screen Resolution in Hoary 5.04

    also, just FYI, if you're running an nvidia card and your monitor says it doesn't support a resolution, it won't let you change to it. In order to fix this problem, go into the "Device" section of...
  8. Re: HOWTO: Making your windows look super sweet in Hoary (compositing)

    I've been testing xcompmgr with various WMs, they all work with it but some run better than others. For example:

    xfce - has a major bug where if certain windows are resized to be bigger, it won't...
  9. Re: HOWTO: Making your windows look super sweet in Hoary (compositing)

    If it's laggy, guys, it's probably a misconfiguration with your video card. I'm running on a celeron 667 with no lag at all. Make sure acceleration is on, and like I said, it might not work well with...
  10. Re: HOWTO: Making your windows look super sweet in Hoary (compositing)

    I had that problem too. If you did the AllowGLXWithCompositing thing, then all I can suggest is that you disable xscreensaver or pick one that doesn't use OpenGL. I had many problems with...
  11. Re: HOWTO: Making your windows look super sweet in Hoary (compositing)

    hmm, that's strange. I haven't had too many problems with logging out. All I can suggest is that you killall xcompmgr, or restart x using ctrl+alt+backspace. It's still pretty buggy, so you're bound...
  12. Re: HOWTO: Making your windows look super sweet in Hoary (compositing)

    It's because you're running warty, you have to be running hoary for this to work.
  13. Re: HOWTO: Making your windows look super sweet in Hoary (compositing)

    Yeah, it's a known bug that xcompmgr makes windows overlap the gnome panel, afaik the only way to fix it is to make sure it's the first thing loaded (order 0)

    [edit] Oh, also, just FYI you don't...
  14. HOWTO: Making your windows look super sweet in Hoary (compositing)

    (NOTE: THIS ONLY WORKS IN HOARY, DOES NOT WORK IN WARTY. Also, since I use an nvidia card, I'm not sure how well this will work in ATI. I've put in some ATI instructions that I've read but I'm not...

    Re: Setting Screen Resolution

    Sadly, this doesn't work the other way around; if Linux thinks your monitor can't support a certain resolution it won't let you use it. I was using 1152x864 (or something close to that) in Windows...
