View Full Version : [ubuntu] UBUNTU 9.10, nVidia 9300N GS, Screen Flickers Text Mode

November 13th, 2009, 02:53 AM
After installing 9.10 I downloaded nVidia 190.42 driver install, and...

/etc/init.d/gdm start

after which the screen flickers, and after some doing I am able to run ...gdm stop to unload X and bring the system back to "normal" I have found some threads that if you go back to kernel 2.6.28 it works and that there "may" be an issue with 2.6.31 if that is true, then:

1. What repository can I find the 2.6.28 kernel in?
2. What repositories should I add?

I am new to Ubuntu because it's more cutting edge than "Lenny" so I need some help feeling my way around the repositories.
