Constantly having trouble with the Nvidia drivers install. Quick howto: If there is already any NVdiai driver installed, then run : telinit 1 #to go to single user mode sudo /usr/bin/nvidia-installer –latest If to be installed freshly: sudo su – cd /root wget ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/latest.txt cat latest This tells you the latest version then you can wget ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/304.43/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.43.run I have no idea why wget ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/`cat latest.txt| awk ‘{print $2}’` doesnt work, I will need to look into this deeper. Then: telinit 1 cd /root apt-get remove nouveau*  ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.43.run Reboot afterwards Related posts: Hardware lister lshw Ubuntu: Powersaving Tweak for Netbooks Ubuntu: Howto drastically speed up Firefox Ubuntu: reduce swappiness Ubuntu encrypt the home directory and swap Centos / Debian / LVM: Add a new disk as a LVM volume
