View Full Version : [ubuntu] Nvidia Kernel Woes

April 2nd, 2009, 04:18 AM
Interesting case on my hands:

So I just upgraded my kernel in Hardy (2.6.24-24 generic) and the first thing that happens; no internet...

So okay I try to modprobe ndiswrapper

sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
and I get
FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found

Booting to another kernel I notice that linux-headers-`uname -r` is not installed, nor is linux-ubuntu-restricted-`uname -r`. So I install both of those, and reboot, and then the VIDEO doesn't work!

So I removed linux-ubuntu-restricted-modules-`uname -r` and restarted and NOW the internet is not working, giving me the same error I started off with!

Oh boy oh boy oh boy! Fun stuff. ANY help is definitely helpful thank you in advanced.

AHA I figured out what was wrong; and how to fix it.

So I installed linux-restricted and THEN linux-ubuntu.

What you MUST do is install linux-ubuntu then linux-restricted to get both to work. If you have installed linux-restricted then linux-ubuntu, simply uninstall both, then reinstall in the order of:
linux-ubuntu-modules-`uname -r`
linux-restricted-modules-`uname -r'

Now restart and wallah!
Hope this helps someone!
