This is sort of a continuation of this thread:
But to give as much info as possible here's what I'm running on:
Toshiba Qosmio X300
Duo Core 2.66
Nvidia 9800 GTX
2 x 320 GB HDD (windows 7 on one and ubuntu on the other)
32 bit Ubuntu 8.10
Running the 177 Nvidia driver I get the errors:
and here is my xorg.conf file
/var/log/Xorg.0.log:1651:(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)
/var/log/Xorg.failsafe.log:1651:(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)
Also back when i was running 9.04 I had a thread on this forum:
# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously
# in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings
# here are ignored.
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

And the latest poster has suggested that i edit my kernel boot parameters. How does one go about this and is it wise?
Anway any help you can give I would be eternally grateful for.
