Re: nVidia driver 1.0-96xx causes glitches, artifacts and crashes on Ubuntu Edgy/Feis
sorry to barge in guys, but i got the 8776 driver working on a current feisty - 126.96.36.199-generic- by patching it with the patch meant for 2.6.19 kernel and installing by cd ing into the extracted folder and using ./nvidia-installer -n command.
Before that it was not loading the nvidia module complaining about missing /sbin/lrm-video. I installed the linux-restricted-modules-common package before i did the above and it works ok for me now. I also disabled composite.
I don't know if this will help but just in case....
