I've installed Ubuntu 12.04.2 on my home PC which previously ran XP, this computer isn't a dual boot, I opted to remove windows. Install seemed to go without a hitch until I went to reboot, computer froze with the CD still in the disc tray. I removed the disc and manually rebooted.
Unfortunately my graphics card isn't being recognized. Through some internet searching I've been able to find out the model of graphics card I have. By using:
lshw -c display description: VGA compatible controller product: k8m89OCE/k8n89oce [Chrome9] vendor: VIA Technologies, Inc. physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:01:00.0 version: 11 width: 32 bits clock: 66MHz capabilities: vga_controller bus_master cap_list configuration: latency=64 mingnt=2 resources: memory:c0000000-cfffffff memory:dd000000-ddffffff memory:de000000-de00ffff
I've tried using:
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-openchrome
..and it says:
the following packages have unmet dependencies: xserver-xorg-video-openchrome : Depends: xorg-video-abi-11 Depends: xserver-xorg-core (. 2:126.96.36.1991)
I've also tried:
sudo X :1 -configure
and it says Number of created screens does not match number of detected devices. Configuration failed.
