inside drm directory. Then post the output in some pastebin or attach it to your post.Code:./configure
Anyway, keep in mind that as noted by dinxter this guide is OUTDATED. I'll have some time to update it only in February.
For now, you could just use some PPA like xorg-edgers fresh X crack (nightly builds) to install xserver-xorg-video-nouveau package.

Thanks for your advice, I tried again with thein drm directory, as advised by sithlord48 from kubuntu forum. As well I have tried the ./configure angle you just suggested. Attached is the output from my attempts.Code:sh autogen.sh
No pkg-config was not installed but I did install it and checked withwhich replied pkg.m4Code:ls /usr/share/aclocal | grep pkg
I also manualy checked if it was in /usr/share/aclocal, which it was.
I then started again and it went fine tillThis is the reply7. Enter linux-core directory and compile kernel modules
Code:cd linux-core ; make nouveau.oI have attached the output from my terminal/konsole session.Code:bash: cd: linux-core: No such file or directory make: *** No rule to make target `nouveau.o'. Stop.
PS: Will it matter that I'm trying to install on both ubuntu & kubuntu?
ALSO: I followed the advice fromand added their PPA to my systems software sources, only to discover they were already installed. but when I wrote an xorg.conf file suggested @ http://ossnotebook.blogspot.com/2009...r-work-in.html my xserver blew a gasket and would not start nor when I tried to log in via recovery mode. So I reinstalled the OS again.For now, you could just use some PPA like xorg-edgers fresh X crack (nightly builds) to install xserver-xorg-video-nouveau package.

then "make" and "sudo make install".Code:./configure --enable-nouveau-experimental-api --prefix=/usr/
- What VGA do you have? Is it supported (see the tutorial's notes section)?
- You don't have to edit screen section, only device in xorg.conf .
If sth goes wrong when starting X server at least save a copy of Xorg.0.log.
- Instead of reinstalling the system you could have just used ubuntu live cd to edit xorg.conf or boot to CLI ("Recovery mode" (?) or sth like that in the grub menu ) and used nano editor which is pretty easy to use too.
Thanks for you're advise The new code for ./configure worked well but I still cannot get passed #7 Enter linux-core directory and compile kernel modulesCode:cd linux-core ; make nouveau.oI have attached outputsCode:bash: cd: linux-core: No such file or directory make: *** No rule to make target `nouveau.o'. Stop.

Feature matrix for more details.
I guess now steps in 2D section should be sth like:
then just go to step 11.Code:./configure --enable-nouveau-experimental-api --prefix=/usr/ make sudo make install sudo modprobe nouveau
Don't expect any help with 3D section until next month as currently I am pretty busy.
I have really appreciated the time you have given me already and cannot thank you enough as you're replies, in this post, have been quite rapid compared to my other posts.
I shall attempt to use the code you have divulged and if it won't work I'll try to hold off till the new guide is written or nouveau takes over from vesa.
Once again thanks for ALL you have done.
