    Installation of NVDIA drivers

    What i did was i entered alt ctrl f2 and then typed:
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/gdm stop
    apt -get install build-essential
    sh NVDIAdriver........
    StartX this didn't work so i just typed X and it seemed to half start
    The problem that i have now is that it will not boot. It just gets to Running Local scripts and flashs then comes back to Running local scripts and flashs again. This occurs a few times then it just looks like its frozen.

    I can access the termninal using recovery mode which i tried to turn on X server from with no avail.

    Any help would be apreciated!

    First, while your in the recovery mode type:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
    This will reset your xserver (xorg.conf).

    Then boot into normal GUI mode. After you log in go to "Synaptic Package Manager" and search for nvidia. Select "envyng-gtk and envyng-core". Then open a terminal and type:
    Code:
    sudo envyng-gtk
    This will install your video drivers for you.

    Hope this helps........

    I had the same problem once. What I did was to install enving.
    sudo apt-get install envyng-gtk
    Then simply, using root:
    sudo envyng --t
    in order to use the text mode. Then you choose option one- install nvidia driver in text mode. It all worked for me without need to reset the xserver. It's all done in recovery mode.
