    Booting up after beryl installed.

    I installed a fresh copy of ubuntu 6.10

    I installed my graphics drivers using envy
    link for envy:

    Useful Stuff:
    300GB hard drive
    3.0ghz pentium 4
    1.5gb ddr ram.
    256MB nvidea geforce 5700LE

    graphics installed fine, then i went on to install beryl using this tutorial

    After i managed to installed beryl but the windows borders were gone, i tryed reloading them from the beryl menu. didnt work.

    My version of linux was completely up to date.

    Now when i boot up i get an error message along the lines of: failed to start x server. it is likly not set up correctly. Would you like to view x server output, the output is way too long to post here.

    But i took note of a few things.

    X windows sys ver 7.1.1
    Build os: linux
    Module loader present
    Log file: "var/xorg.0.log"
    using config file: "etc/x11/xorg.conf"

    at the bottom of my detailed x server output i noticed failed to load the NVIDEA kernel module.

    I have tried the process many times, formatting the computer but i still have the same problem.

    I have basically given up and im probably going to wait untill beryl is out of beta. Is there any1 who can help me on this 1?

    Mank thanks.

    does it at least get up to the login splash?

    No, it doesnt even get there, i think its a problem with nvidia drivers, but envy installed them so i think might have to wait untill it comes out of beta. But i think there is a solution to this in the meantime because i know other users have been able to use beryl with nvidia.

    I'm a novice with linux, but I had a similar issue. I'm running a nVidia 6200. The first time I used envy and when I did it screwed up the graphics drivers causing kernel conflict between the new and old driver. I ended up reinstalling ubuntu and used the binary X.Org driver instead. Then I installed beryl and it is working well.

    try restarting ubuntu in recovery mode from the grub. when everything loads edit the /etc/xorg.conf file and change the device driver back to the default nvidia "nv" or the generic "vesa" driver. that might help

    Decided i will just re-install ubuntu

    now following this...

    when i go to system>admin>software sources click 3rd party tab then add "deb edgy stable" and try to close it comes up saying check its out of date, so i click reload and then i get the error "W: GPG error: edgy Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 3FF0DB166A7476EA" Im using ubuntu. Any ideas?

    Hmmm. The source address should be good...I used it two days ago, but I added it in terminal with sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list instead. Then I used the sudo apt-get update command. Then used this last command to get the key:

    wget -O- | sudo apt-key add -

    I can't remember what else I did. I had to try a couple different methods on the net before I found one that worked for me.
