You use mv to move or rename files. The syntax is: mv oldfilename newfilename, where "oldfilename" and "newfilename" should be pretty self-explanatory. An example would then be "mv S99GDM s99GDM".

Make sure you have your kernel source installed. I believe it should be apt-get install kernel-source-`uname -r`?

Ok, i did that, but it didnt change anything. this time i wrote down the error message. I figured that would be a little more helpful.



Error: gcc-version-check failed:
./usr/src/nv/conftest.sh: line 19: cc: command not found

could not compile gcc-version-check. Please be sure you have your distrobution's libc development package installed and that 'cc' is a valid C compiler name

I think you have to check to make sure gcc is installed. I remeber having some problems like that. The way I fixed it was to use synaptic to install automake and make sure I had the latest gcc and g++ files installed. You may have to rename s99GDM back to it's orginal S99GDM so You can get into gnome. I found using synaptic was the easiest way for package dependency checking.

The errors is basically saying that you don't have a particular development file installed. What you get when you type cc in a terminal.

I'm not really sure what you meant, but if I type cc into a terminal it says no input files.

Yeah you have to install your kernel source. I think it is
Code:
apt-get install linux-header-`uname -r` 

or 

apt-get install kernel-source-`uanme -r`

how are you typing in the commands the marks around uname -r is the button about the tab key. might also try googling for how to install the kernel source or you can ask the Ubuntu forums here.

I've also installed the nVidia drivers...unfortunately it did not fix my network problem, but mabey you'll have better luck.

It appears that your Linux boot default runlevel is 5
(X11). You can change this default by editing the
/etc/inittab. Make a copy first.

Change the line that looks like:
id:5:initdefault:

to:
id:3:initdefault:

and reboot into the console. You should now be able
to install the nVidia drivers. After, change
the /etc/inittab file back if you want X11 to
start upon reboot.
