In Ubuntu 8.10 have you tried using envyng to load your drivers. They can be loaded from the repositories using:
Quote:
sudo apt-get install envyng-core envyng-qt
The file should load into your Applications>system menu or you can run it via the terminal using:
Quote:
gksudo envyng-qt
.
If after rebooting your screen resolution is not right then you can use:
Quote:
gksudo nvidia-settings

That did not work.
I tried it, then ubuntu rebooted, and said "could not load gui" and ran a a terminal. So I restarted once again, and im back to where i began.

Please provide a bug report as explained in

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46678

Else we can just guess what might be wrong on your system, and therefore not support you.

Kind regards

Fuchs
