Hi, i have a HP DV6150la, full specs (actually are for 6150br, but everything is the same):
it has a NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 chipset on it.
I'm running ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft. I have everything working on it but the video, I must use Vesa driver to run Gnome, but it has a 1024x768 res. and its quite slow...
I downloaded the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9746-pkg2.run, killed gnome (sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop) and installed:
. During installation, it searched for a kernel on the ftp server but it couldn't find one for me, so it compiled a new one, installed, and i started gnome with startx, it ran ok, after that i rebooted (sudo reboot) and it crashed.
on the xlog it says:
(II) Setting vga for screen 0.

(==) NVIDIA(0): RGB weight 888

Fatal server error:
no screens found
on startup it said that kernel was 7184 and drivers were 9746.
I tried with 7184 legacy drivers (NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7184-pkg2.run) as well, but no luck either.
What sould I try in order to get it working, I don't know why if i start X (with startx) just after install without reboot it runs, but when i reboot it doesnt. I tried rebooting inmediatly after install, but the result was the same. any help would be greatly appreciated, I attach the Xorg.0.log and nvidia-bug-report.log
Can I use x86 drivers even if I'm on a turion64x2 with ubuntu x64??
thanks a lot!.
