    thanks for the help .........
    did you navigate to the folder that has the nvidia driver in it?

    I do that all the time, forget to $ cd Downloads when installing the drivers.

    I looked harder. All I can find is this. It seems a little vague, but it supports what you said.

    Code:
    The package suffix (-pkg#) is used to distinguish between packages containing the same driver, but with different precompiled kernel interfaces. The file with the highest package number is suitable for most installations.

    Re: [HOWTO] Install NVIDIA drivers manually on Lynx

    Why did you use vesafb (instead of uvesafb)?
    uvesafb supports more resolutions than vesafb - like 1280x800.

    I realized a broken framebuffer after the update to Lucid Beta2.

    So I have written a tutorial in the German ubuntuusers.de forum, how you install and use uvesafb and get plymouth (new boot screen) displayed at start up correctly.

    The translation:

    Add or replace in /etc/default/grub for 1280x1024 @ 32bit color range (replace with your favorite resolution)
    Code:
    GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=1280x1024x32
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="video=uvesafb:mode_option=1280x1024-32"
    . Then run
    Code:
    update-grub
    . In /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-framebuffer.conf you add the line
    Code:
    blacklist vga16fb
    and add in /etc/initramfs-tools/modules the line
    Code:
    uvesafb
    . Finally run
    Code:
    update-initramfs -u
    .

    In some cases you need to install the package v86d from the repository.

    A fix for get plymouth before the X server starts:
    Code:
    sudo su
    echo FRAMEBUFFER=y > /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash
    update-initramfs -u
    exit
    Without that fix you see plymouth only a few seconds and at the longest time a black screen.

    PS: All commands needs root privileges (sudo) and
    don't forget to save the changes!
    Use your favorite text editor: gedit, vim, nano etc.

    The changes will be activated at the next boot.

    I hope you understand translation.

    PPS: I don't know how often the nvidia-current package will be updated, but I think a stable and tested driver is better then a new and 'not tested' driver.

    Word to the wise: The Ubuntu X Updates PPA regularly adds stable NVIDIA drivers within a couple days of their release.

    https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-x-swat/+archive/x-updates


    Most people should use that instead of NVIDIA's .run files. It's very easy.
