Re: Hardy+nvidia - not working through reboot
OK, I'm back up and running again. Although the how-to on the above link really should come with the warning:

Considering that the NVidia driver worked perfectly for me 100% of the time in Gutsy, this seems like a shocking regression on the part of Hardy 8.04. To be having to mess around reinstalling drivers and packages at the command line, not to mention that every time I do this it screws up my Compiz-Fusion and Screenlets, is a real hassle. And I find it hard to believe that this is due to "a bug with the NVidia driver" as stated elsewhere on the forums when exactly the same drivers work perfectly in Gutsy. Its.... just shocking, really.
