I did like to thank all the help this thread has provided me. I would also like to add that this line
sudo apt-get --purge remove xserver-xorg-video-nouveau
was crucial for getting past the nvidia kernel not being able to run problem. I can now finally get back to doing work!
AndyBoy_LV thanks for how to. After 6hours of google search and struggle I finally installed nvidia driver on apparently-better-than-jaunty-lucid....
Thank you very much this is very helpfull.
it works on my GT 8600
Thank you for your work
but not work for me
maybe i do some mistakes
but i repeat again and again and again ...................
also not work
please can you re-explain with picture
note my pc vaio cw series and the driver display is :
NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M
andy-boy's first post worked for linux kernal 2.6.32-22-generic, but now that ubuntu has updated to a newer version i can't get to my desktop, i'm stuck in the terminal. please help.
"6) When an error message pops up saying that Ubuntu cannot load Nvidia drivers, choose Exit to terminal (Exit to console)
7) Login and cd to the directory where you saved your file"
I exit to console just fine but it brings me to a black screen where i log in. from there what does cd to the directory mean. i saved the file on my desktop.
When i sudo gdm- start it sends me to the same screen as if i were to exit to console.
sudo gdm-stop does not work while in the black window
For me to stop I need tu use gdm-stop and to start I use service gdm start...Code:sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop (start) sudo gdm-stop (start) sudo service gdm stop (start)
PS - You made space in your gdm-stop above. That's important as that might be reason (!)
