    nVidia Drivers
    G'Day; I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed. My PC = VGA; Gigabyte 1Gb ddr3, GT440 PCU = Intel i5 Quadcore 3.33Ghz MOBO ; Gigabyte H55 Now the problem is that when I try to load the nVidia drivers, through the terminal with; Re: nVidia Drivers sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -f sudo dpkg --configure -a sudo apt-get install nvidia-current sudo apt-get install nvidia-common sudo apt-get install nvidia-settings reboot (sudo shutdown -r now) or through the Additional Drivers App.' I end up at the shell with no GUI nothing and can't do anything but reboot into W7, delete the partition and reinstall 10.10. I was told, in one forum, to run telinit 3 but when I run that command nothing happens, also to remove the nouveau drivers, but when I run that command it returns "cannot fine nouveau package", Can anyone help please. Kind regards Miykel
