Re: Legacy C51G card
 
Have you tried using envyng-qt to load your drivers under 8.10... I find it more reliable than the restricted driver loader.

Hello, Thanks for your suggestion!

the enyyng-qt showed that the 173.14.12-1-0ubuntu4 driver should be installed(the recommended flag was checked), but after reboot as prompting, the X windows still can not be started with the error same as in the
Xorg.0.log (attached in the first post)

I also tried the other two compatible drivers: 96.43.09-0ubuntu1 and 177.82-0ubuntu0.1,
but both not successful.

anyway, the card is a legacy one and I can enter into the default Ubuntu 1024*768 resolution,
for most app, it's good enough.

and thanks for all your time and help!
