Unfortunately, after that I cannot find a dsc file that is supposed to be used in compiling the driver. I think I need more specific instructions than the post provides. Can anyone please give me some additional info? Thank you.
Installation seemed to go smoothly, no errors, and I selected MATE as the
desktop choice during install. The only other option I selected was the
"additional desktop software" (sorry, do not remember the exact text).
However, after installation, when it boots, one of the last messages you
[FAILED] Failed to start Load Kernel Modules.
Last line is something along the lines of:
fb: switching to nouveaufb from OFfb NVDA,NVMac
And then the text starts dissolving, and the entire screen cycles through
different colors. I presume it is sitting at the graphical login prompt but
it's not displaying correctly.
Based on some Google searches, it seems like I should be able to resolve
this by editing /etc/modules using nano from a command prompt but I can't
get to that point. After the machine starts cycling through the colors, I
press ctrl-alt-F1 through ctrl-alt-F12. If there is a command prompt being
offered, I can't see it.
I also tried different yaboot options I found in searches that were
supposed to avoid using the video driver. Unfortunately these didn't work
either, but maybe I'm not choosing the right ones.
How do I get the machine to boot straight to a regular text login instead
of the X-based one?
Also, this machine worked fine running Mac OS X this morning (partition was
deleted during the install process), so I don't think it's the hardware.
Please let me know what I can do. Thank you in advance for any help you can
