Re: Driver for Nvidia GeForce 8300 GS
If uname -r gives: '3.2.0-xx-generic' that is 12.04. But you quoted: "3.2.0-generic", without the '-xx', which would give you the 'not found'.
12.10 should give you: 3.5.0-17 or up to -27 if updated.
There looks to be something badly wrong with your installation; did you format the partition before installing 12.10 ? or did you install, over the top of whatever was there ?? or was it an upgrade ??
You could try:
If you can get to a TTY or terminal, and note any errors. Though that would be much the same as 'Fix broken packages'.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -f
Otherwise it looks like another format and reinstall.

"Better Solutions may bring Worsened Problems": After Lao Tse, b. circa 405BC. a contemporary of Confucius, who died circa 600BC.
They did things differently in those days, apparently!!
