100% agreed on KDE.
I just pm'd tis to someone else, worked perfect for me every time now on 32bit 7.04.
I never could get the 64bit to work, but I'm on 32bit now running sweet.
a.) Dl the alternate install cd
b.) Install using vga and noapci
c.) sudo apt-get install libc6-dev
d.) Verufy the following packages are installed:
-linux-headers for your kernel. Do 'uname -r' minus quotes.
e.) Sudo apt-get remove nvidia-glx --purge
f.) sudo rm /etc/init.d/nvidia-kernel
g.) sudo nano /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common.
Change DISABLED_MODULES="" to DISABLED_MODULES="nv" save and exit.
Dl the 9755s. http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-9755.html
save them to where you like, do ctrl+alt+F1, then log in and do
'sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop'
The last bit will be /kdm stop if you use KDE.
sudo sh NVIDIA_name_of_pkg...
Run nvidia xorg-config when it asks you, reboot and enjoy.
Maybe this will help??
