http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi all, I'm trying to install Xubuntu 12.04 64bit on a Gateway GT5432 with an Nvidia Geforc 7950 GT OC graphics card. During the live install I had problems with the video and had to run nomodeset which fixed the problem for the live-cd. After the install the system would hang on a black screen after grub finished. I've tried to add nomodeset during the grub loader to try and repeat what I did during the live CD, but I still get a black screen. Finally I tried to update my drivers: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-current (Hardware)
