Whenever I use envy to install nvidia-glx-new and all the other drivers and stuff, my computer boots into low graphics mode and if I ctrl+alt+backspace and hit startx it gives me an error.

I looked in the logs and it shows this:

(II) Setting vga for screen 0.
(**) NVIDIA(0): Depth 24, (--) framebuffer bpp 32
(==) NVIDIA(0): RGB weight 888
(==) NVIDIA(0): Default visual is TrueColor

(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

Also the error given talked about my nvidia kernel and driver versions not matching. How would I solve that? I already tried purging envyng and the nvidia drivers and reinstalling. I also tried installing legacy drivers but that screws up the resolution anyway...

okay I fixed it by manually compiling and installing the driver.. =___=
