cul_awayinstalled an nvidia 8400gs and 10.04 won't boot anymore, with or without the card present. Any wisdom?20:50
holsteincul_away: i would try the recovery console... ideally, you would remove the driver *before* taking that card out.. you can always put a custom xorg.conf in place that forces vesa20:51
cul_awayholstein: tried recovery, no boot there either..20:54
holsteinok.. then vesa, or going to the command line and uninstalling the driver you installed, or any xorg.conf or anything else that would force the proprietary driver that is failing for you20:55
holsteinfirst time i encountered this, i reinstalled ;)20:55
holsteinthe next few times, vesa worked til i could get in20:55
cul_awayholstein: installed the card, installed driver, system requested reboot, boot splash came up in lo-res then hangs20:55
holsteincul_away: not sure i follow you20:56
holsteini was assuming you had a functional system booting an unmentioned proprietary video driver.. then you took out the card20:57
cul_awayholstein: you know the splash scree that says ubuntu 10.04 with the four dots..20:57
cul_awayno, other way around.. working system.. installed nvidia card loaded driver.. dead system20:57
holsteincul_away: sure.. just unistall the driver20:58
cul_awayhow can I go about that.. I'm currently running a minimal install on another partition.. I can access the other but I don't know what i'm looking for..20:58
holsteinon my system, i used a knoppix disc to get a nice xorg.conf file, then when i installed the proprietary nvidia driver, and it went all wonky like that, i used the xorg.conf from knoppix and changed the driver section20:59
cul_awayis there someplace you can point me that would have a walk-through of sorts?21:00
holsteincul_away: i would get an xorg.conf for you system, however you like to go about that... i use knopppix or puppy somtimes.. then put that it /etc/X1121:00
holsteincul_away: not really.. you can ask nvidia i suppose, but i doubt they are eager to speak with you about it ;)21:01
holsteinyou can try main #ubuntu21:01
holsteinbut, this is the way to go21:01
holsteinyou can boot in and get to the terminal and remove the driver as well, and go from there21:01
cul_awaycould I possibly use the xorg.conf from this present install I'm using now.. same system, same 10.04...21:01
holsteincul_away: if there is one there already, try editing it21:02
holsteinim my cases *with* nvidia, the one the driver created was bad... kind of like what you are explaining21:02
cul_awayso I'm in my current "good" install in etc/x11... I don't see an xorg.conf...21:05
holsteincul_away: i just backed up 2 xorg.conf's.. the knoppix one, and the nvidia one.. i remember using the vesa driver to troubleshoot, and just experimenting... i used a live CD21:05
holsteincul_away: right.. there doesnt have to be one... you *can* use one... knoppix generates one still AFAIK21:06
holsteinyou might have had nvidia create one, and you are not looking at that /etc21:06
cul_awayso if I pop in a live cd and grab an xorg from that, you're saying I just replace it into my "dead" system with appropriate edits concerning the system specs?21:07
cul_awayhere is my xorg from the dead system.. http://pastebin.com/qfturEGx21:11
