    what the hell have i done wrong?


    Was working happily with pinguy did some updates and tried to open up calibre and it went mad. Now after recovering i cant seem to get my dual monitor setup working and things look strange.


    can anyone help?

    EDIT: I think it might be my graphics card! When it tries to boot up it freezes when the boot up should tick over to the gui. Then after recovery if i try to set the normal screen sizes and reboot i get warnings that the screen sizes i chose are incorrect. Which i know are correct!

    If it is an Nvidia or ATi card and you had some kernel updates then you may need to re-install the driver. I'm not familiar with Pinguy so can't be more specific.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    Like Elija I don't run what you are running. This is old info for reinstalling old driver. Sounds like the fglrx driver

    Was working happily with pinguy did some updates
    was included with the update.

    Thanks. Have now re-installed pinguy again - it was a fight. But will keep that info handy as i think i'm going to need it


    EDIT:Prob never had to re-install again (even after ^^^^)but had to as for some reason the boot loader was on another drive......swear linux dont like me lol

    Another problem. Trying to mount another drive but keep getting this error:

    daemon inhibited
