Full Version: Problem with NVIDIA drivers
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
After installing updates in UBUNTU Jaunty I had problems with graphic drivers, so I uninstalled Nvdia drivers and tried reinstalling 185.18.14 drivers. However I get following message "Unable to find kernel source tree for the currently running kernel..." and the installation fails.

I tryed to install using procedure decribed here http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=52259

Any help would be appreciated Sad
Follow these steps, they work perfect every time for me -

1. sudo apt-get --purge remove $(dpkg -l | grep nvidia | awk '{print $2}')
2. wget ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-...9-pkg1.run -O NVIDIA-Linux-185.pkg.run
3. sudo install NVIDIA-Linux-185.pkg.run /usr/src
4. sudo ln -s /usr/src/NVIDIA-Linux-185.pkg.run /usr/src/nvidia-driver
5. sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
6. sudo sh /usr/src/nvidia-driver
*****SAY NO WHEN IT ASKS TO RECONFIGURE XORG.CONF*****
7. sudo reboot
8. sudo nvidia-xconfig (set settings and save. you're done)

Now I need to get the sound working again which apparently also got messed up
