[ubuntu] Compiz closed

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have installed Ubuntu 12.10 on a old Pentium 4. ( dimensions 3000)I get a report Compiz closed and I have no desk top. I have a Nivida graphic card coming in the mail. I have had graphic problems with this computer before. Can I install mother board driver updates before I have a OS? Compiz closing is a graphic problem? Thank you Tony (Hardware)
