    Exclamation X server problem after doing upgrades with NVIDIA (low graphics mode)

    I've had this problem since edgy eft and I think it's time I've posted this here.

    Currently I'm running 8.04 64 bit, but I have this problem on 32 bit as well. On a clean install everything works fine, but after I do the first upgrade and reboot I get the low graphics mode error thing. However if I stop gdm and reinstall my drivers it works fine.
    I have a 7600 GS.
    I'm trying to figure out what in the upgrade causes this and how to fix this, I hate having to reinstall my drivers after every boot.

    If you need the output of anything let me know and I'll get it here pretty quickly.

    Thanks in advance.
    Edit: I have a dual monitor setup.

    If you install your drivers 'the old fashion way'; you have to reinstall your driver after each kernel upgrade.

    Try this:-
    1) Open a modules file for editing with:-
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common
    2) Edit the DISABLED_MODULES line to make it look like this:-
    Code:
    DISABLED_MODULES="nvidia_new nv"
    and save the file.

    Then reboot the PC and see if the Nvidia module now works properly.
    Think carefully before executing commands containing "rm", especially "sudo rm -rf ", if you require more information concerning this matter, read this.
    I am an experimenter, give me the most stable OS and I can make it unstable in a few hours.
