Default AMD64 + Ubuntu Feisty Fawn 7.04 + Geforce 8500 GT = Ouch!

Hello, I'm running Ubuntu Feisty Fawn 7.04 x64 and I am having trouble getting Xorg to display ANYTHING at all. After putting the new card into my PCIe slot and turning it on, it gets past grub and then goes blank with splashy and Xorg. I have posted my log file. Could someone please help me?? Thanks for all help and suggestions! (Since everything blanked out, I installed the nvidia drivers from the console in recovery mode after doing a telinit 3. Thanks all!

(The new card is a EVGA e-GeForce 8500 GT) - lspci identifies it as all ????s

It looks like a really old kernel module is getting loaded. Does X work if you reinstall the NVIDIA driver, and then stop working after you reboot? If so, this is an Ubuntu packaging bug and you should seek help from Ubuntu's support community.

Thumbs up Re: AMD64 + Ubuntu Feisty Fawn 7.04 + Geforce 8500 GT = Ouch!

This has been resolved. In case anyone was wondering - Ubuntu seems to reset your xorg.conf file and reload the default nv drivers upon reboot. To install the drivers straight from nvidia, I followed this guide for feisty fawn:

It works beautifully now!
