    I'm not interested in autmating the process, I can install them manually just fine. The problem is with the drivers themselves.

    I'm pretty sure I tried that method and had the same problem. It's been so long, I'm just gonna wait until 8.10 and move from there, I think. Feisty support will be dead by then anyway.

    Yep, pretty much. I think with most people the EDID thing is killing their displays. It's killed mine no matter what way I install the drivers (any version past 96.43). I can't get an NV board...

    I have that same issue with Feisty now...and if I remember correctly, every time I installed the nvidia driver manually, that issue occurred. I'll try to see if a bug report has been filed.
