I ran the distribution update tool and ended up with a boat anchor. I tried to use without any success several versions of the Nvidia proprietary drivers. That will give you a menu entry called Additional Drivers green which will in turn give you a choice of drivers to install. When I checked it a second box popped up stating that it was necessary for 3d utilization. I have the same problem installing the driver from Nvidia’s website on Edgy.

I had an error with my restricted repositories. Wont even let me have a working tv-out connection. Please see this post on the ubuntu forums:.

You should hardly be surprised or angry, since your GPU is ancient On the other hand, in the case of say, my laptop with an mx, the restricted drivers manager will give me an option to install the nvidia driver, which right now would be a false positive since the exclusion of the proper driver, essentially breaking X.

I recently switch from windows xp geforcee4 Xubuntu after trying out other distros. Yes I fully agree to the degree that a solution to the “3 drivers problem” makes the thing critical.

Anyway, for 4440 who are still struggling with getting their system running again- here’s what I did: Soul-Sing soulzing wrote on That gave me a working X server. Email Required, but never shown. July 1st, 7.
