I like this new distribution but I can not use it. When I install the ATI/Radeon graphics drivers using the tool for it and reboot I get nothing past GRUB. Is there a fix for this? It is a pity that I can not use this. Since I am a military veteran who helps military veterans and their families obtain benefits they deserve I have to make sure what I install will work and hold up through my rigorous testing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU in advance.

That driver, which is not open source, is notoriously buggy and unstable and always has been, ever since I began using Linux. I get along well with the default graphics driver.

That said, I'll install it and see what happens and report back.

Stephen, I finally tried it without installing the proprietary graphics driver. Seems OK. Probably will not be able to run Compiz but that is not a show stopper for me. Other than that GREAT JOB! I will stick with this distribution.

Thanks, Jon. :)

I'll still try to give that driver a go soon. I'm right now trying to complete a MATE-only version. I uploaded the XFCE-only version last night, which shaved off about 200MB from the download.

:) I appreciate that Stephen. Still no issues as of yet, and I have put the fresh install through the ringer. So again great job!! Seems like I finally found a version of Linux I like. Will donate more when I am better off-like after the holidays. Got to save up to get the Harley out of the shop and Christmas presents for my wife and 5 grand kids.
