View Full Version : [ubuntu] Nvidia GFX Driver help

November 16th, 2008, 02:51 AM

Very new to Linux, thort I'd give it a try - not the best experience as of yet but I'm going to persevere.

I installed Ubuntu 8.10 I think. I box popped up telling me I had an Nvidia GFX card and to select either 173 or 177 drivers and activate the hardware. I did this then it asked me to reboot, which I also did - all I got after that was the CLI and could not get X11 to start.
So, I re-installed the whole OS and am now trying again.

Could anyone give me any pointers on getting the GFX drivers installed please?

I thort this would be a really simple thing to do... How wrong was I...

Thanks in advance!:)
