Re: HOW TO: install nvidia driver .run packages yourself in ubuntu edgy 6.10
i have had problems as well with installing from repos, which is why i prefer to use nvidia's installer when possible. it's a shame that the new edgy rls has turned out to be so problematic... at least for me. i'm downgrading back to dapper tonight becuase of too many issues, including a random freeze with gnome that i can't seems to diagnose (not nvidia related).
i really appreciate nvidia's commitment to linux, whether open source or not. it would be great if there was a more organized or "nvidia blessed" repository of the latest stable builds for different repos. it could be user maintained and managed... given a little education in the matter, i would probably be willing to help maintain the ubuntu side.
