Re: NVidia Driver
Could you try just copy pasting that command exactly as it is into a terminal(from within the GUI). Don't substitute `uname -r` for anything- It basically asks the system which version of the kernel is in use.
I think there might have been a typo when you typed it in(those are not quote marks around the uname -r, it's the little squiggly thing in the top row of the keyboard to the left of the 1,2,3 buttons- `uname -r' not 'uname -r' ) This was the same mistake I made the first time I tried
In Intrepid, I think the current version should be linux-headers-2.6.27-11-generic
bala@bala-desktop:~$ uname -r
bala@bala-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`

build-essential is already the newest version.
build-essential set to manually installed.
linux-headers-2.6.28-11-generic is already the newest version.
linux-headers-2.6.28-11-generic set to manually installed.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded
So you can also just substitute `uname -r` with 2.6.27-11-generic so that the command looks like this
Hope this clears your doubt.
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-2.6.27-11-generic
All the best.
