[xubuntu] Nouveau video driver on Karmic

http://ubuntuforums.org – I've tried installing xserver-xorg-video-nouveau on my laptop (a Dell Inspiron 8100 with GeForce2 Go graphics), and it seems to finish successfully... however, when I boot, I see the splash, it fades away (like it should, I think), but nothing else happens (the system is silent, except for those weird sounds that the system always makes). If I press the power button, the splash fades back in, then out again after a while and the system locks up. I didn't see any logs, so I'll experiment a little more and bring what I find later. In the mean time, is this a known issue? Am I doing something bad in my xorg.conf(below)? Any help/advice would be appreciated. ^.^ xorg.conf: Code: Section "Device"         Identifier        "nVidia Corporation NV11 [GeForce2 Go] (rev b2)"         Driver                "nouveau" EndSection Section "Screen"         Identifier        "Default Screen"         DefaultDepth        24         SubSection "Display"           Depth                24           Virtual        1400 1280         EndSubSection         Device                "nVidia Corporation NV11 [GeForce2 Go] (rev b2)" EndSection Note: If "Device" and "Identifier" don't match, it's because I typed them by hand. They match in the config file. (Hardware)
