View Full Version : [ubuntu] Nvidia 6800 Headache

April 25th, 2008, 06:10 AM
Disclaimer: I am a complete newbie to linux and Hardy Heron is somewhat my baptism of fire into the world of Ubuntu so bare with me.

I just installed Hardy Heron onto a 2nd hand Dell XPS 400 which is packing an Nvidia 6800.

So everything was peachy until I installed the nvidia-glx-new driver pack. Before I could log in and actually get past the login screen and play around with the GUI albeit at 8x6 reso, now I can't get past the login screen as the driver conflict just causes my display to stop working.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Does it happen something similar to this?
