    nVidia-driver problem


    Hi.

    My config:

    AMD 64 Athlon 3000
    Abit motherboard
    2 gb RAM
    nVidia GForce 5200 DDR 256MB.
    Ubuntu 6.10

    I've dl the the proper driver from www.nvidia.com. When I follow the steps from nVidia it says type sh ./NVI -bla bla

    It seems to install proberly, and asking to update xorg.conf, so the driver will run with KDE, the next boot. Everything seems to work fine.

    Now for the problem:

    The next time i start the Linux computer X is displaying some kind of error msg, and will not run. I have to kill gdm, and run the sh ./NV* again. I do not get any error msg, and when the compiling and installing is complete, I can type gdm. The the nVidia logo flashes and I can log on as normal. Now everything seems to be okey. BUT. The next time I start the computer, I have do to it all over.

    I'm willing to belive that it does not save the xorg.conf-file and the kernel is run in the RAM, which means its gone when I hit the powerbutton.

    Anyone?

    You could try saving the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file once you have got Nvidia working as perhaps/etc/X11/xorg.conf.working and the copy the contents into the broken one that you boot into
