The initial install refused to active X. After checking the net
without result I re-installed having the same result without X
Remembering having read about dpkg-reconfigure I did so and this time
declined the offer to include a software frame buffer as well as the
hardware for my Nvidia card. The install completed and I now have a
functional system, with 2.6.18-486 kernel built with module assistant.
I do not however have a functional version (APT) of BLENDER (2.4.a) I
think? I just have a bouncing icon which disappears after several
seconds without starting the program. Everything else is great!
Except Blender..... Geeeee whiz..... Darn it!
