    Have you installed the nvidia drivers? Though you should have atleast vga.

    Note: the driver "nv" should already be installed. You can use that one until you get the "nvidia" driver installed.

    You download the driver from the link I posted. There is also a readme there that tells you exactly how to install, and includes a FAQ.

    Basically you do
    $ sh
    (that was the filename for me, change it if yours is different)

    This post is a dupe, but has replies on both threads. So I'm locking this one and follow-up can be found here.

    In the future, please do not post the same question twice.
