I am currently running kubuntu gutsy, but this bug was also happening on
feisty, i am using an intel 102GGC2 motherboard with a 3.0 Ghz CPU with
HT, 1 Gb of RAM (667 MHz) i have a winfast px7300 LE video card. after a
clean install of gutsy everything works fine till i install the nvidia
drivers, the system will show usplash at startup and the progress bar
would reach the end, and instead of seeing the graphical boot screen i
see a console one. i log in, but any attempt to startx would end up with
a series of errors all circling around that there is no nvidia gpu
found. at first i used to reinstall the driver and then do "sudo
/etc/init.d/kdm restart", but then something amazed me, is that when i
start the driver install, and i click accept for the license, it would
tell me there is a driver and that it is going to be overwritten, if i
say no, the installer exits and restarting kdm works fine. meaning that
without any reinstallation happening kdm worked! im sorry for not any
copy of the error messages.
