I recently bought a Dell Vostro 1400 Notebook on my trip to Thailand. Since there was no offering of Linux as pre installed OS, I bought it with Windows Xp and Nvidia GeoForce 8400M video card. Now the problem is that after I have installed Ubuntu 7.10, i.e uname -a gives this output
Linux ubuntu 2.6.22-9-generic #1 SMP Fri Aug 3 00:50:37 GMT 2007 i686 GNU/Linux
I cannot run Nvidia's 3d driver, though the 2D driver "nv" runs fine. I cannot get it running even after all the upgrades. I have followed all the articles that I could find but to no avail. If anyone can help me out with the problem of activating Nvidia's 3D driver and sound for now, I could be really grateful. I have attached my concised xorg.log here in the mail so that you can understand my problem better. Thank you in Advance for any help that you can provide me.
