    Default 180.22 hardy-server kernel

    Hi,

    I'm having a few promlems getting the 180.22 driver to work with Ubuntu 8.04, kernel 2.6.24-23-server
    I can only seem to get the 180.16 working. In the end went back to Ubuntu 8.04, kernel 2.6.24-23-Generic and the driver installs fine, I would like to get the server kernel working so i can use all my ram without going 64 bit.
    I removed all traces of Nvidia before installing, and have installed all other versions fine, just can't seem to get this working.

    Any advice welcome.

    Thanks

    Please try typing

    dmesg | grep -i nvidia

    And see if there are any error messages.

    Also although you will be able to access all the ram using the server kernel it is really not optimised for a desktop (its runnig at 100Hz instead of the preffered 1000Hz - also no pre-emption)

    The best way of utilizing all you ram is to compile a kernel with desktop settings and PAE
