nvidia driver install breaks the system. had to install 5 times. oh why do i alwaays try these crappy things..
the default oss driver for nvidia works but prompts to install the proprietary for better performance. installing this, or downloading it from nvidia and installing (www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html) causes the X window system not to start at all. It seems to nuke Xorg.conf completely and something called GLX for nvidia is also not found. After running “X -configure” and replacing the xorg.conf file I could boot into X again. But all the images (the desktop) are upside down and right to left. yes the screen operates as if it was oriented normally and does not paint.. Oh yeah Ubuntu is so easy right..
I’d go to windows but what can I say.. Where’s my install disk?
