Thanks for reporting this bug and any supporting documentation. Since
this bug has enough information provided for a developer to begin work,
I'm going to mark it as confirmed and let them handle it from here.
I am adding the WorkAround provided to the description.
Thanks for taking the time to make Ubuntu better!
** Changed in: linux-meta (Ubuntu)
Status: New => Confirmed
** Description changed:
recent (since around 184.108.40.206, but I could be mistaken) linux-
restricted-modules-generic packages are apparently providing an nvidia
kernel module that cannot load, instead giving the following error:
FATAL: Could not open '/lib/modules/2.6.24-8-generic/volatile/nvidia.ko': No such file or directory
my guess is a broken link pointer somewhere, but 'locate nvidia.ko'
returns nothing, so it's possible that the kernel module isn't being
installed at all.
I'm running the latest alpha of Xubuntu Hardy. I have both linux-
restricted-modules-generic and nvidia-glx-new installed.
+ 1. remove "nv" from the list of DISABLED_MODULES in
+ 2. Restart the computer
