The Problem is that my System running Kubuntu is only starting the X Server in Low Graphics Mode.
/var/log/Xorg.0.log is giving me a strange error where even a Google search finds only 3 Sites:
I attach the generated bug log in hope someone can point me in the right directon.
edit: I am sorry I posted in the wrong section, post was meant to be in the NVIDIA Linux section
Attach the whole Xorg log please.
I just had a problem with installing the 195.36.08 driver and on boot i got the same message. But the interesting part was BEFORE the latest lines - the module version mismatch - the previously installed version's kernel module was loaded.
But i was able to start gdm if i removed the nvidia module from memory (sudo rmmod nvidia) and then started gdm.
After a bit of googling turned out the kernel module was not updated in minitramfs and on boot the old module was loaded from it.
1. Install the driver
2. Log in in text mode (i use Debian, there is no fallback X), and issue the following command in theminal:
Try it, maybe it wil work for you too. It doesnt break anything.
Edit: stay away from 195.36.08 for now, there might be some issues with it - in Windows sme guys had their cards fried by the 196.75 driver that seemingly has similar changes to 195.36.08.
