    Ubuntu NVidia Drivers

    Hi,

    Tomorrow Im leaving towards Austria to ski, so everyone:
    Merry Christmas
    Just one question: Where is a how-to about installing NVidia drivers for Ubuntu? The 'Debian' way doesn't work and the official installer suggests me to get and compile my kernel sources, which is even more scary in Ubuntu. I'm looking for something like the NVidia drivers in the Livna repo for Fedora

    Thanks in anticipation

    Re:Ubuntu NVidia Drivers

    Well, depending on the version of your nvidia card. Mine is

    Code:
    compunuts@sienna64:~$ sudo lspci
    0000:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV10DDR [GeForce 256 DDR] (rev 10)
    compunuts@sienna64:~$
    Then the driver is simply "nv" in the "Driver" section of "xorg.con" file instead of "nvidia" as in the ubuntuguide.org .
