@ubuntu-user:
Didn't find the file "/lib/linux-restricted-modules/.nvidia_new_installed" on my system

@all:
I installed the 32-bit distri of Kubuntu 7.04, but the situation doesn't change...

...but I found sth else ...

when I restart X11 in console with the nvidia driver enabled, it tells me:

Fatal server error:
No screens found
XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"

is that really the ID my screen should have?! I posted earlier that it's a 26" HDTV connected via DVI, which runs on 1024x768 ...

I'll post the requested logs asap


EDIT: et voila ... my log

I don't know if you know that, but files with .DOT in the beginning of the name are hidden files. You must enable the 'show hidden files' option on your favorite file manager or use $ ls -a to view all files in the directory.

I double checked it ... also with "ls -a" ... still not there ... only the "2.6.20-15-generic" and "2.6.20-16-generic" folders

Code:
jo@ubuntu:/lib/linux-restricted-modules$ ls -a
.  ..  2.6.20-15-generic  2.6.20-16-generic

Hey again... I've gathered some new ideas...

Could this simply be an incopatibility issue with my screen? Could it for example get better if i connect the screen via VGA instead of DVI?

Or could the whole thing be caused by nForce drivers, which I could not installed and left like that?

I'd appreciate your opinions on these points.

Snowlord,
I do not see the NVIDIA driver installer log in your bug report. If you (re)install the official 100.14.09 driver package from NVIDIA's website, do these problems persist?

Well I purged every nvidia-packs and installed the 100.14.09 driver, but unfortunately with the same result ... right now, I'm back in with the nv drriver ...

could it have sth to do with the fact that I added the option "vga=792" to the kernel bootoptions? with nv this works fine, but without it, the screen just stays black and i hear the sound of kubuntu logging in after boot...

and here's my nvidia-installer.log

Just install envy and use that. It will correctly install the driver and set things up. I have been using it for a while now with no issues.

@netllama:
I generated a new nvidia-bug-report.log and attached it ;-) (did already one further back, but I guess since I reinstalled the driver it's rather useless now)

@aesaeion:
Have you ever read my first post?

... (no matter if i used apt-get, envy or so) ...
I've really tried every single option in Envy to see if it helps ...
