Thanks for the replies; Code: Unless you are a geek who started with linux in RH6 and has used suse, gentoo, slackware and now ubuntu, and can compile your own kernel. The nvidia-legacy driver supports your card just fine, minus some extended features. This thread makes it appear that they are releasing 96xx series drivers as “legacy” drivers: Having a problem logging in?

It looks like nvidia’s proprietary driver version May 16th, 1. If nVidia isn’t keeping the driver up-to-date, we are having to modify the build ourselves to make it compile. The bottom two were black, and the top two showed my background image in negative colors where blue turns purple, white turns black,etc. Could you post here your sources.

I have remove nvidia- glx-legacy, and install nvidia-glx,it’s work now. Confirmed working for me — my bug was marked as one of the dupes of this one. You’ll get proper resolution and acceleration. Desktop Effects and everything. So overall it looks like the below on console.

Will there be a policy decision on this?

The NVIDIA nfiniteFX II engine incorporates dual programmable vertex shaders, faster pixel shaders and 3D textures–giving developers the freedom geforxe4 program a virtually infinite number of custom special effects to create true-to-life characters and environments. Here’s what I can say from the X log: Note that this isn’t gp a matter of putting it in.

BB code is On. This makes the nvidia driver critical for normal operation.

Appendix A. Supported NVIDIA Graphics Chips

Or perhaps this particular chipset doesn’t play with Ubuntu well. Email me about changes to this bug report.

Hope it will work for you too as it has already worked for many of us. I solved them by uninstalling using the Nvidia installer and then reinstalling the ubuntu packages nvidia-glx, linux-restricte d-modules- 2. Would this be a problem not with Gevorce4 but with the proprietary Nvidia Driver itself?

With the email on -devel mentioning it might be able to fix the broken upgrades issue I’m happier.

I ran the distribution update tool and ended up with a boat anchor. I have an old HP towerwhich was left to me by my friend, and it also has Intel Pentium M processor. Please see this post on the ubuntu forums: I want to say “Thanx!


It is posssible to do this by manually editing the xorg. I had exactly the same problem as you liunx with the same nvidia MX graphics card and there is no problem now. I had to completely reinstall the OS but afterwards, it worked. Get the same lifelike characters and game environments that you expect from the most advanced desktop graphics, now on a notebook PC.

Unsupported Nvidia GPUs

Note, I had a bear of a time getting the resolution and refresh rates to be what I wanted after the install using Ubuntu’s screen resolution control panel. I know it doesn’t match, but Linus switched the font for the tables back to “Courier New” which is a monospaced fontto bring the columns back in to alignment. After using an old xorg. For people who are still having problems and who mistakenly installed nvidia-glx-new before switching to nvidia-glx, see here:
