I forgot to mention that 7.10 comes with a graphical X configuration tool. Kinda useful I guess . . . If it fixes my NVIDIA driver and CF problems, there won't be any use to edit xorg.conf.

Just more of the same six...black screen after install, no drivers recognized etc. Looks like buntu doesn't have the 8800 card recognition fixed yet.

In all honesty it probably wouldn't be bad to fix, I didn't have time this morning. I just see absolutely zero excuse for an OS with so much support taking so long to iron out a reasonably simple problem.

Glad I backed up my Debian /. Looks like it may be back pretty quickly.

Oh wow. I thought the 8 series card issue was dealt with . . . Well just remember that Tribe 5 isn't the final version. Maybe they will have it solved by October. I really hope it works out because I'll have a 8 series card by December!

I did too. There's certainly nothing special about my rigs configuration. But like you said, I don't really expect an alpha release to be up to snuff. I just had my hopes up is all.

I'm sure it will get sorted before release.
