Default Re: TwinView on Ubuntu Edgy

I found that advice shortly after asking the question. I downloaded the drivers off of the nvidia site. Installed them, and now X crashes every time it tries to start.

The Nvidia installer originally threw errors about my needing a SDK/Development package. Said it created the Kernel, and my xorg.config file. Then broke X. So i did "sudo apt-get install xorg-dev" and reinstalled the drivers. This time it didn't throw any errors, but still broke X. I'm on my windows partition right now, but i wrote down the errors X threw.

Failed to initialize nvidia kernel module.
Screens found but none have a usable configuration.
IO error 104(connection reset by peer) on x server ( 0.0 )

i think i may have to reinstall the repository drivers
