Re: nvidia drivers and ubuntu 10.10
I don't think HellraiserAJ's post is related to your problem. You are unlikely to encounter his problem. He should open a new thread and post a detailed bug report if he wants help.
Increasing vmalloc will most likely fix your problem. 128M is the default value for the Linux kernel. Generally this is enough, but it is not on your system. Unfortunately, there are tradeoffs for dividing the 4GiB of virtual memory for a 32-bit system. Honestly, if your CPU supports 64-bit, I'd recommend moving to a 64-bit distro. It will have better performance because of the larger number of general purpose registers on the CPU, and you won't experience this vmalloc problem. Plus, you'll still be able to run 32-bit applications anyway.
