OK I'm done with Intrepid. I got the darn X to stop as Nil's showed
me how and that worked just fine. Then I ran the NVIDIA bash file and it
ran just as always, not finding a pre-made kernel, and the set to the
task of making a new module for the Intrepid normal kernel. After a
while it printed out:
Error: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module, the kernel is not proper.
Then it stopped and it said to read the error file in /var/log/ which I
did and it did have a big problem with the Intrepid kernel.
I wanted to determine if the NVIDIA package called 173 would work. I
failed and have lost interest in Intrepid. This version has some major
changes to it and some I really do not like. I don't want to use a
operating system like that. I do really understand Hardy.
