http://ubuntuforums.org – I have an nvidia 5500 fx and karmic 9.10 and cannot get it to work. Code: 02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5500] (rev a1) I have tried the hardware drivers gui with ubuntu, same result (see below) I have tried manual install of 185 driver, same result I have tried the installer and driver from nvidia.com, same result My result is a garbled screen that is usless flashing lines. The first splash comes up fine, screen fickers, then goes garbage. Picture from phone attached I have tried several combinations and ways for setting a xorg.conf. I'd paste mine but it is currently blank as nothing but that is working. any suggestions?
