    Default last night i try a nvidia-driver on 2.6.33 and fail

    last night i stay by a frend and try to help him out.
    i try a nvidia-driver on 2.6.33 and fail, after i fail, i download a patch for 33 and fail again...

    what do i wrong ?

    and a other problem to i can't install the nvidia driver in X...

    the driver wans ini3 save mode...



    in my point of view amds closed-source driver do have a better installer.
    i can install it in X KDE running and do not need turn of x...
    yes i also need a patch for the 2.6.33 but after the patch it works...

    in the end i downgrade him to 2.6.32 and now it works.

    yes composit 3D desktop makes flash movies extremly slow turn of the 3D desktop brings normal speed back.

    nvidia shows to me thats the amd's 3D desktop problems are normally...

    something is very broken by desine with the cloused source drivers AMD/Nvidia--

    You must have used fully outdated nvidia drivers. Use the latest stable 195.36.08.

    it was a 190.50 based driver.

    i think the card is to old for the newest driver...

    When 190.53 works then of course 195.xx too.

    yes thank you very much if i go to my friend next time i will install the new driver......

    he needs me to install the driver because install a nvidia driver into an Ubuntu 9.10 is to complicated for him.. (no its not funny)

    he fails on jumping into a failsafe init 3 mode to install the drive because its boot without a grub boot screen...

    I have some questions:

    How to install the nvidia driver in an running kde-X session ?

    or alternative way
    How to get a grub-boot menu splash screen ?

    in the past i edit the /boot/grub/grub.cfg and set # to the normal boot to get the next in the list: failsave boot...

    is there a key to press at start to get the bootmenue?

    do ubuntu have a install script for the newest nvidia driver like kanotix ?

    will the opensource nvidia driver ever run HON ?

    You don't know that my script installs nvidia drivers on U too?
    Code:
    sudo -i
    rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf*
    wget -N http://kanotix.com/files/install-nvidia-debian.sh
    sh install-nvidia-debian.sh
    Be sure that you always run the lastest script to get support for latest driver versions. Additionally my script will configure dkms which the default nvidia-installer does not. That currently does not work with pure squeeze/sid, therefore you would need "-m" option there. To use more than 1 monitor add "-d". All drivers have been tested that are enabled (fully automatic driver selection) - it will just not work when you need a 71.xx series driver and use a too new xorg.

    Default i found the option

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Grub2
    GRUB_TIMEOUT=0

    he need to chance that. so he can chose the save mode from the kernel

    U patches GRUB2 to hide the menu. You can access it when you hold down the SHIFT key on startup. I don't get what you want with the timeout value...
