  3. [ubuntu] Re: NVIDIA config missing "driver line" in default device section, not booting to gui

    If you are trying to upgrade to the newer/newest NVIDIA Linux drivers (which I recommend from my experience), then you will need to shutdown/exit the X11 window server. This isn't the easiest thing...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Flashing screen when restarting Ubuntu with NVIDIA GeForce

    That would have been the nouveau driver running from the LiveDVD when I didn't observe this problem. The nvidia module showed "shutdown flashing" with all flavors of Ubuntu 10.04 that I tried.

    After trying several flavors of Linux while archiving/organizing/converting my Ubuntu stuff from the last 3 years or so, I can state this is DEFINITELY a problem in the NVIDIA graphics driver module...

  10. [SOLVED] Re: BCM4321 not working after upgrade to 11.10

    Hi wildmanne,

    Are you sure about that April date? My understanding is that 10.04.3 LTS means "Long Term Support" (a HUGE portion of the reason(s) why I prefer it). Well that and the fact that I...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Need Assitance Setting Up Wireless With No NIC Card Available

    That is a fairly large kernel driver object file "wl.ko" that my Broadcom 4321AG/"4328" wireless is currently using ( ~2.5 MB, and working very well with):

    Perhaps there is some firmware burrowed...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: Need Assitance Setting Up Wireless With No NIC Card Available

    I'm quite sure that "wl" part means you downloaded and installed Broadcom "STA" firmware instead of Broadcom "b43" firmware. I'm actually a little surprised that your 4318 is working with STA...
