Thanks for your reply. But what do you mean by 'priority drivers'? For as far I know, the nouveau driver was used in both M1 and M2. And, of course, I would have to reinstall M1 - as a new install, I suppose - to start the work flow you describe.
You are correct. Install M1 first, install the proprietary drivers, update the installation. You will get a notice that a link to nvidia is missing.
This is when you reinstall the drivers. And, voila!. You can boot to M2.
Here's what I did.
So, in my case I have an Nvidia graphics card. So I first blacklisted "nouveau" using the command
echo "blacklist nouveau">> /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf
Next I down the latest driver from nvidia.com. This is followed by shutdown and reboot to init 3
Install the driver and reboot. Now I would be able to use all of the effects, 3D etc.
Run the update using the M2 DVD and then install the drivers again.
Hmm, I don't like the idea of using the NVidia driver here very much. Especially in this test course, I think it's better to use the oss nouveau driver, so that this driver can be improved (if the fault lies in the driver, which is uncertain I understand).
But thanks for your thinking with me!
