this above procedure did install nvidia 100.14.19
I did the above and when i go to Screens and Graphics it still says I am using the VESA Driver. Also my xorg.conf has to use VESA driver.
any time I change it to use the NVIDIA driver it will not use it at all. I get a screen on reboot that says in low graphics mode selet correct driver.
If i can get it to use the NV or NVIDA driver then i only get 800x600 resolution.
I am on UBUNTU 7.10 and have a PNY GeForce 7600 GS.
any suggestions on how to make it use the NVIDIA drivers?
yes i enabled the restricted driver via the GUI (system, admin, restricted drivers)
