I thought I did them changes
but.. now I've removed ubuntu feisty and reinstalled edgy because everything used to work with that
still doesn't work
after installing edgy (ubuntu 6.10) I installed the drivers and set the xorg.conf to use nvidia drivers instead of nv
then I got this error
(II) Setting vga for screen 0.
(**) NVIDIA(0): Depth 24, (--) framebuffer bpp 32
(==) NVIDIA(0): RGB weight 888
(==) NVIDIA(0): Default visual is TrueColor
(==) NVIDIA(0): Using gamma correction (1.0, 1.0, 1.0)
(**) NVIDIA(0): Enabling RENDER acceleration
(II) NVIDIA(0): Support for GLX with the Damage and Composite X extensions is
(II) NVIDIA(0): enabled.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(II) UnloadModule: "ramdac"
(II) UnloadModule: "fb"
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.
Fatal server error:
no screens found
now since I had no clue how to fix that because kernel module was installed for as far as I knew.. I decided to try that automatix thing
which solved that problem but I get them stripes all over the screen again
but I did manage to make the nvidia bug report.. maybe this one has the information you need
