Perhaps a clean Breezy installation could solve your problem. I can't support Breezy users 100% until I try Breezy myself (when it is stable).Originally Posted by stanner
that might work, however I may just wait until breezy is official, and then give the drivers yet another uninstall/reinstall, until then I will just cope with using the NV drivers.
Can anyone please help.
I can get so far but it appears installiny 5.10 (Gnome) and then apt-get install kubuntu-desktop creates problems for stopping X Sessions. It says (In either Gnome or KDE my preference) that is cannot find the x sesssion to stop, ie:
Go into terminal mode and try to stop X Session and it reosrts the relevane (ked or gnome) session not detected.
Any help appreciated as I really would like to get the NVidia driver for my simple FX 5200 installed and 3d enabled for bzflag
Pax eet bonuim and many thanks in advance
Base line: How can I stop anyu X Session and work in single user mode (ie init 3)
After they official realease of ubuntu 5.10 flatulant ferret, I decided to go ahead and try a reinstall. Unfortunately I encountered the same problem when trying to startx, the screen froze on a blank screen. Do you have any more tricks or tips that I might try?Originally Posted by tseliot
1) What's the model of your graphic card?Originally Posted by stanner
2) try this:
sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Add the lines in red at this section of the file:
Identifier "NVIDIA Corporation NV40 [GeForce 6200 TurboCache]"
Option "NvAGP" "0"
Option "RenderAccel" "Off"
Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "DFP,TV"
Option "NoRenderExtension" "Off"
Option "Accel" "Off"
Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" “Off”
And then try to use the nvidia drivers again. If it doesn't work you can try to add the line in blue.
yeah I tried that and still nothing, I have a GeForce4 440MX, I am thinking that I might just switch back to Sarge, I never really had any video problems in sarge, but I really like the user community around ubuntu.Originally Posted by tseliot
I'll give that a whirl and let you know how it goes.
