[Bug 192931] Re: modprobe nvidia fails with "FATAL: Could not open '/lib/modules/2.6.24-8-generic/volatile/nvidia.ko': No such file or directory"

confirmed, sorta. I can now modprobe nvidia, and set xorg.conf to use
it. But it uses the nv driver anyway, and defaults to 1600x1200 (rather
than the widescreen 1920x1200 I need) on X restart. At least now it
isn't booting into "low-graphics mode" every time; why would enabling
the nvidia driver suddenly make the nv driver work (of course, even that
might not last through reboot; I'll report back)?

So does that count as [SOLVED], and I should open a separate bug? Or is
this the root problem of this bug?

Thanks for the help. It'd make more sense if 'nv' always meant "the nv
driver," and not "nv, unless it's in the restricted modules file, in
which case it refers to its polar opposite, the nvidia driver."
