Question Failed to initialize the NVIDIA GPU at PCI:1:0:0 Please.

Hi there,

I've been trying to install the nVidia proprietary driver on Kubuntu 12.04. (Precise Pangolin) since the release of the newest Kubuntu, unfortunately with no success. Every single time, and I've tried many times, the X server crashes after installation and I don't know what to do with it. Below are some details retrieved from system logs. Please help me with this.

Failed to initialize the NVIDIA GPU at PCI:1:0:0 Please.

nvidia: module license "NVIDIA" taints kernel.
Disabling lock debugging due to kernel taint
nvidia 0000:01:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 16 (level, low) -> IRQ 16
nvidia 0000:01:00.0: setting latency timer to 64
I've found this piece of information during my search odyssey, but still don't know how to make use of it as there's no acpi=off or similar in my kernel boot parameters.

Thanks in advance.

Maybe there is a new turret, or some walls have moved. Or perhaps someone has temporarily removed the floor under your bed."
