So I'm trying this again with a new pc that's AMD let me give the specs. AMD Phenom II X4 805 @ 2.5Ghz Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD4P motherboard HD Radeon 4850 XFX 1GB GDDR3 4GB DDR2 Corsair RAM @ 1066Mhz 1TB Hitatchi Deskstar SATA HDD IDE Pioneer DVR-118L So this guy on youtube says he has the same mobo as i do and has everything working just peachy with his config. Here's the vid http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAK-CQJ2HHo He shows everything he checked and what he did to get it to work. It's true it did kinda work, Except I have a few problems I can't solve. I have a different graphics card then he does and every time I try and install a driver the video dies thus killing the install since I can't do anything without video. Sound he say works but was something I could not get to work because in terminal I keep getting permission denied even when I'm in super user mode. Btw the only way I've gotten this to boot is with Cpus=1 -v -x and that puts me in safe mode. Also i can't install any applications such as skype. When I do the kernel panics. Now that I've listed everything I know, can some one please help? Especially with the video I can't find the proper video driver anywhere, is there a place where all this stuff is located? If not is there a way to compile the driver myself from a linux version?
