    Last time I tried nvidia drivers on my 1215N, after reboot the system would be left at shell, as with you. However, I could boot to recovery mode (select from grub) and boot to "restricted graphics" mode (or whatever that was called)

    It's odd that the Eee 1015pn is supposed to work fine with Ion 2-

    I kinda thought the 1015pn and 1215n had the same chipset.

    If you have already installed the proprietary drivers, from CLI purge all the packages nvidia-* and remove /etc/X11/xorg.conf then reboot.

    do you have the option in your BIOS of disabling the Optimus switching?

    Sorry for the late response. I just noticed that in this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...3#post10252703

    someone noticed that NVidia has released a new set of 32-bit Linux drivers, that supposedly support Ion. Worth a shot?

    I'm curious about this too. I also can't seem to find a changelog for this update.

    Same problem here with Asus Eee 1215N. This one has BIOS 0605, Maverick 10.10 and kernel 2.6.35-25, all updated to today.

    In recovering I searched via aptitude and found the package nvidia-current-modaliases also was installed, however it has a dependency in nvidia-common so I let it be:
    Code:
    > sudo aptitude purge nvidia-settings nvidia-current
    > sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.nvidia
    I wonder if 11.04 will fix all of this: I'm not particularly interested in trying to install the 2.6.36 kernel until Natty is ready.

    I took this system on the road for 2 weeks around Europe and the U.S., used it in several locations for presentations, ran wireless everywhere, wrote on airplanes, etc. Had to use my USB ethernet adapter as the built-in is useless with the current version. The battery life was a little short but really no additional problems other than in one place they wanted to use HDMI and we had to scramble for a VGA connector instead. There I coulda made use of the nvidia...
