Has anyone faced a problem with installing the Nvidia drivers on ubuntu
I have an Intel 815 mobo (integrated graphics), but I'm using the AGP
slot with GeForce 2 MX 400.
When i try to install the driver using "sudo apt-get install
nvidia-glx" (as in ubuntuguide.org
) everything installs ...but then
when i restart x (ctrl+alt+backspace) or restart the comp ... the
machine reboots at the point when x is trying to come up.
So then i tried installing the official nvidia drivers. Since it didnt
have precompiled module for the kernel (i'm using the one that came
with 5.10) it build it (i downloaded gcc 3.4 for that and kernel
headers), but the same thing happens again. Every time it tries to
start x it reboots.
I could do with some help here.
I'm using nvidia drivers on current PC,
I installed the drivers, "apt-get install nvidia-glx nvidia-settings"
and then ran the following:
sudo nvidia-glx-config enable
then had to tweak the xorg.conf for the monitor settings and resolution for
did you run the nvidia-glx-config enable
