Need help with Nvidia.
If you want to run the installer from the nVidia site you need to get the following packages -Code:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essential gcc gcc-3.4 xserver-xorg-dev

Hey I am completly new to linux, so I may not know what I am talking about but.....
I recently installed the 3D drivers for my nvidia card, I just followed the instructions located at the ubuntu web site.-https://help.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/desktopguide/C/hardware.html
BTW, I did have to do sudo gedit, or what ever that text editor is called, and open xorg.conf and changed where it said driver "nv" to "nvidia", and then restart the windows manager, but it was not hard, just back up xorg.conf before to try to mess with it. I recently had a post about the same question-http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/ubuntu-help/66353-installing-3d-drivers-xgl.html
Again I am completly new to linux, so I might be a little off.......

alternatively for an easier installation (and gives you tons and tons of other apps and codecs) google for "automatix" and follow their install instructions.
its an atuo script that installs programs off a list of stuff for you to tick. the nvidia drivers are on that software along with realplayer, mp3 and dvd support etcYou know, aliens are going to come to earth in 50 years and kill the hell out of us for DDoSing their networks with this SETI crap
