looks good as far as i can see. Only the driver fails to load.
[ 169.120] (EE) NVIDIA: Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module. Please check your
[ 169.120] (EE) NVIDIA: system's kernel log for additional error messages.
is there anything interresting in dmesg or syslog ? Seems I need to test this when i get to my eee. Thanks for your time
EDIT: Just realized that there was a known bug concerning mint display manager. Replace mdm with lightdm and nvidia mode will work.
sudo apt-get remove mdm
sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends lightdm gnome-settings-daemon unity-greeter ubuntu-mono light-themes
