    While I appreciate this. I would really rather use the Ubuntu nvidia packages and ubuntu's dkms system. ... except for the fact that it appears to be currently broken. :/

    filed a bug with launchpad:
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...80/+bug/450865

    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-185-kernel-source
    from the command line in recovery mode fixed this for me.

    It's like the new module wasn't being generated.

    Having same issue in mythbuntu 9.10 rc. nvidia 185 driver shows up with blank screen. Works through VGA input on a regular monitor but does not work through DVI. My TV has only a DVI input.

    Followed guidelines at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Bi...erHowto/Nvidia and added "Option "UseDisplayDevice" "DFP"" to xorg.conf. no good.

    Followed guidelines on this thread and tried "sudo dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-185-kernel-source". Still no go.

    Installed 173 and the GUI screens show up, but videos don't show. VLC and Xine run, can hear the sounds but no video.

    Installed 190 beta from nvidia. No use.

    All the kings horses and all the kings men cant seem to put humpty dumpty together again...

    Re: linux-2.6.31-13-generic +nvidia driver = black screen:-/

    I fixed mine with

    Code:
    apt-get install nvidia-glx-185
    dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-185-kernel-source
    in the run-as-root recovery console.

    The flashing loging screen is extremely irritating

    I guess it did not really fix it
    Back to the flashing login on the next reboot.
    173 did not work for me either.

    We are the Xorg. Resistance if futile. You will be reconfigured.
