    Nvidia HELL (no boot screen or GUI)

    Edited now since graphics are completely broken after fresh install. See below.

    Have you tried re-installing plymouth-label again ?

    I did, no change.
    I backed everything up already on to my secondary storage drive, so I think I'm going to do a clean install on my main drive. It's probably time.

    I'll report back. I'm expecting to still be missing a boot screen and I'd really like to figure that out.

    The awesome news is that a new install of 12.10 is completely useless - noveau evidently doesn't work at all with my card and I get crazy graphics that lock up constantly while I'm trying to install Nvidia drivers from the command line...which is fun.

    Re: Nvidia HELL (updated-no unity, blank desktop)

    With or without nomodeset, the computer boots into low graphics mode. I can log in, and then I get a blank desktop with no launcher. The only thing I can do is a Ctrl+Alt+T to get a terminal window.
    If I run "unity", I just get Compiz errors and the computer locks up.
    Any ideas? I need my computer back!

    I have been trying everything to install my nvidia drivers to no avail.
    jockey-text -l
    lists some drivers including kmod:nvidia_current.
    jockey-text -e kmod:nvidia_current
    fails with a message to view the jockey.log. The last line:
    /sys/module/nvidia_current/drivers does not exist.

    I guess I might have to try the manual install here...?

    FANTASTIC!!

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-current linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    jockey-text -e kmod:nvidia_current
    sudo nvidia-xconfig
    reboot
    Worked!
    I have no boot screen, but I can live with that.
    Everything appears stable so far.

    Thanks very much.
