Unhappy 180.18 and 180.22 result in low-gfx-mode

Hi all.

While trying to install the newest .18 or .22 official driver, i find ubuntu restarting in low-gfx mode, with the following error;
Code:
(EE) Failed to load module "type1" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) NVIDIA(0) Failed to initialize NVIDIA kernel Module
blabla
(EE)Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration
Re-installing .16 will work instantly and without any troubles.
I looked at the xorg.conf after installing 180.22, and found the type1 module in the xorg.conf.
However now back on 180.16, i notice that the same line is still there.
In fact, the xorg.conf looks to be exactly the same.

OS: Ubuntu 8.10 intrepid 64-bit
GPU: 8600M GT

Any help?
Thanks

You have following in xorg.conf

Load "type1"

What happens if you comment that out?

I am having simmilar problems. Several errors come up in installation involving libglx.so and libglx.so.xserver-xorg-core and I am getting no progress even after fixing these.

Please post a bug report. Like I mentioned in another thread, the error
Code:
(EE) NVIDIA(0) Failed to initialize NVIDIA kernel Module
means you need to check the error messages from the kernel module.

I just wanted to confirm that. The installation worked for every single version before 180.18. The error message is the same, however, I will deliver a bug report later this evening.

OS: Ubuntu 8.10 32bit
GPU: 7600 GS

So should I run a bugreport while i'm on 180.22 in low gfx mode?
I'm current back on 180.16..

Well, you need a copy of the X log from the failed startup. You could attach a bug report plus /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old if you wanted.

I'm not sure if this is what you want? It does mention 180.22 so i guess its the right one:

Unfortunately, this driver is using the "failsafe" setup with the VESA driver:
Code:
(==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf.failsafe"
You need to try starting X again with the nvidia driver and then grab the log. Make sure you have "NVIDIA(0)" messages in it instead of "VESA(0)".

I encountered the same issue; although, after removing the second GTX 620, everything worked. Seems SLI does not work with this driver.

I am using the beta drivers 180.11.xxx without problems. Open GL is still laggy but no installation problems.

Okai I re-installed 180.22 and got all the logs it created plus the bug report you requested:

Thanks
