Default Re: nVidia driver 1.0-96xx causes glitches, artifacts and crashes on Ubuntu Edgy/Feis

I think I have some good news! Well it isn't good news, but I think it will give more information about the cause of the problem.

I downloaded and ran Ubuntu Feisty Fawn Herd 1 from the live cd. It is using the kernel 2.6.19-7 and I installed the old package of nvidia-glx (NVIDIA driver version 1.0-9629). I then ran:
modprobe nvidia
It gave me some error about a missing nvidia.ko file.
Then I ran:
depmod -a
It told me "error running install command for nvidia"

This is the important part:
I got the idea to install the 9629 driver from the installer downloaded from It installed, but it gave me a bunch of errors. These errors might help tell us what the problem is.

Now the nvidia driver is installed and running, but the artifacts are much worse than before when I had the 9631 driver installed. The OpenGL stuff still renders choppy, etc.

Thank you for all your help!

P.S: I am logging off the livecd, but I copied my log folder in case any more logs need to be attached.
