http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi all, I'm not being able to install the nvidia 180 driver for my GeForce 6200 on Ubuntu 9.04 - Jaunty Jackalope.

Section "Device" Identifier "Device0" Driver "nvidia" VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation" EndSection - tried to install the 185 new driver (attached is the installation log file, which displays some errors) The xorg log shows in different tries the following: Quote: (EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found) Quote: (II) LoadModule: "glx" (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//libglx.so dlopen: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//libglx.so: undefined symbol: _nv000046gl (EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//libglx.so (II) UnloadModule: "glx" (EE) Failed to load module "glx" (loader failed, 7) The sympthom is that after the Ubuntu logo loading black screen which hides the boot sequence, when gdm starts, the system hangs. It doesn't respond to the keyboard. I have then to reboot in safe mode and restore the X, which makes my xorg load with the basic "nv" driver. Any ideas?
