Which nvidia package on your system is installed?

On my Natty I have nvidia-173 installed - because I own an old GeForce FX 5200. After selecting "Separate X Server" by enabling TV-Out in nvidia-settings and restarting my X-Server never came up.

After looking around I found out that nvidia-settings wrote a defect BusID into my xorg.conf. I fixed it by doing:

  1. sudo lspci | grep VGA

    • I got out: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200] (rev a1)
  2. replacing BusID "?@?:?:?" with BUSID "PCI:1:0:0"

  3. service gdm restart :)

Just try to install some more recent wifi kernel modules. - They can come from Ubuntu repositories if you enable the backport repository on your system first.

If you are on Maverick install linux-backports-modules-wireless-maverick-generic. If you are on Natty install linux-backports-modules-cw-2.6.39-natty-generic.
