Hi,
I'm having problems with my Nvidia card. X doesn't work after installation (9.10), only command prompt. I've read the instructions at http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/nvidia on how to enable Nvidia drivers, but the instructions are only for GUI, which I don't have.
Anyone knows how to enable Nvidia drivers from command line ?
Thanks,
Yud.

Try
sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-190

I would imagine that choosing your **own** NV driver-version will land you in trouble.
