Default Problem installing the driver under ubuntu dapper

hey,

As the topic says i have installed ubuntu dapper and haveing some problems installing the driver.

i run the file with sh *.run and the installation process starts and everything looks okay, it also finishes and ask if i want it to configure my x config files, i select yes on this.

When i try to start X again it just crashes and says that there is no such thing as a nvidia driver on the system, any suggestions?

I have also tried apt-get install nvidia-glx and the nvidia-settings (It will only let me install one of those, and if i try to install the nvidia-settings pkg after the glx it says it has to remove it.

Im lost

may be you have xfree86 and x drivers are placed for xorg?

I am having the same issue. I have reverted to my backed-up xorg.conf file but something is weird. Please let me know if you find a solution.

Just follow the instruction on this page

http://lunapark6.com/?p=1235#comment-919

In a nut shell ( You might have to add the repos mentioned in the link, however)...

sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx linux-restricted-modules-`uname -r`
sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf_backup
sudo nvidia-xconfig

That will give you the latest nvidia driver, and you don't have to mess with a thing

When you say that it "...give you the latest nvidia driver...", do you mean 1.0.8762? And if so, do you know why zander's installation instructions specifically tell you to remove the restricted modules?

Not sure why he said to do that. I followed my instructions and it went without a hitch.

Alternately, you can install the various kernel sources, build essentials and just run the nvidia installer (in a shell).

I suppose its your choice...

Good luck...

easyubuntu is your friend. It does all the leg work for you. it also will install the correct repositories for you. In addition it will instal java, multimedia codecs, flash, restricted browser plugins etc. Not to mention encrypted DVD ( ie comercial DVD playback is enabled ). Very nice tool. Google easy ubuntu.
