OK, so after my work Dell blowing up, Fink also gave up the ghost on my Mac after compiling the latest version of Quanta 3.5.1, it crashed everytime I entered any text. So We had to root around the office to find a PC I could get Ubuntu working on so I could actually do some work. We found an old machine, installed and then found the graphics card wasn;t going to give me anything more than 1024×768, which isn’t much use for software development. So we hunted down an NVidia card which would do the trick. However, this meant having to get X to work with it, and as X was altrady set up how do you get it to rescan your video hardware??
Thats how, simple!!! Follow the instructions,. fill out the options you need and hey presto it works.
