Well, I ran those commands through.......and my whole desktop went haywire. I ran an update, and restarted the machine, but when it came back, it wasn't right. I tried coming back to here through Google Chrome, and it restored me to where I abruptly cut off. As soon as I started this reply, the desktop went haywire again, with the Google Chrome Window flickering, and no longer responsive. In fact, nothing was responsive. I looked up and saw an update notification, but I had to restart my computer again to run it. It was from the number 1 source, and it was Linux Mint Drivers. Somehow I don't think that was the intended response to what I entered, so I might have screwed it up. I'm afraid to try again, though, for fear of it happening all over again.
I was here to post up a notice that after replacing the old GeForce 8800 GTX, with a 9800 GTX, getting both the XP HDD, and the Linux Mint HDD set up with all the appropriate drivers for maximum use of the card, now Oolite shuts down on me right after I launch from a station. I have full sound, and I don't see any problem with the graphics, but it just shuts down. In Latest.log, the last two lines read:
17:52:28.762 [Save Anywhere OXP 3.2]: initialising Save Anywhere OXP 3.2
17:52:32.018 [bigShips_populator]: 0 big trader(s) added to the Orrira system.
and was preceded by the list of oxps in AddOns.
I have just recently replaced Linux Mint Mate 16, with Linux Mint Mate 17. Is there a known conflict here? Everything I had on the 16 version has been restored nearly identical on the 17 version, except whatever changes the Mint team made in 17.
Oh, one more thing. I have the NVidia proprietary drivers installed. It all tested out beautifully, so I'm a bit confused at what's occurring.
