    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    well a modicum of success initially.
    okay I managed to find the file in the right directory with the find command, ran the script, it gave me a warning about my kernel having been compiled for riva(something) and then exited succesfully.
    I edited the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to read nvidia in the driver field then tried to restart kde.
    I can't get the Xserver back up.
    The error is:
    XIO:fatal IO error. 104(connection reset by peer) on xserver ":0.0"
    after 0 requests (0 known processed0 with 0 events remaining.
    there is a reference to /var/log/xorg.o.log , but I am now back on XP and the ext2 partitions are invisible here so I cannot reference what it says.

    A small hiccup methinks

    Yeah, you can open a terminal and type

    Code:
    glxgears
    That will give you a benchmark fps.
