the nvidia drivers won't install while running the ait graphics card drivers
now the damned thing is forced to 800x600
fuck it; this isn't worth the time to trouble shoot it
You should really check on www.ubuntuforums.org.
Or the wiki page for your computer model, if you bought the computer instead of building it.
i may register; searching didn't help much
I'm going to look into this next
from another OT ubuntu thread:
Welcome to the hell that is Ubuntu
yea I just installed ubuntu yesterday and gave up on trying to get the video to work properly.
Right, because before Windows XP, it didn't require any effort to install drivers in Windows.
Cut them some slack. People bitch about bloat, and then they turn around and bitch about lack of PnP support. You can't have one without the other.
I can just imagine how much nVidia fanboies would complain about giving up a whole 5MB to the ATi Catalyst drivers pre-installed on their *ubuntu machines, if they actually came that way.
The ATi drivers are not open source. They are "proprietary" as such they would violate cannocials charter/tos/whatever to actually be bundled. That's why they're in the "restricted" repository that must be intentionally enabled by the end user.
Regardless, it doesn't matter. ubuntu fails miserably. I have a machine with a ATi HD2600XT (very common card) and even with the ATi driver, I can't get the display NOT to underscan on the tmds1 interface.
One small difference...the drivers for Windows 95-2000 actually existed and were fairly simple to find.
Ubuntu works nearly perfectly for me. It's stable, with better performance for most things than XP was. The advanced UI makes it much more enjoyable for me to use.
The biggest irritant I have is that I need to load Windows in a vmware image when I'm working from home and need to connect to my office, but that's only due to a required custom vpn client that doesn't support Linux.
Ubuntu worked perfectly on my laptop and my desktop. Recognized and installed the graphics and sound drivers (one AMD chipset and ATi X1200, other nVidia Nforce 570 and at one point a 8600GTS, also runs perfect on my sister nforce430 with 8600GT)
I used ndiswrapper for wireless drivers and all is good. ubuntu 8.04 is way better than the 6.06 I started with a few years ago.
You still need NDISWrapper? Kubuntu 6.10 detected my Cisco wireless card without any help at all, unlike Windows, which still needs to have the drivers installed manually.
