Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

ok, did that and the same result happen. I didn't see a mouse. As before a blinking underscore in the top left hand corner and under that is a white screen with broken green lines at the very bottom of the page. Should I keep posting Xorg.0.logs?
I wonder if this is anything relevant?
o The nvidia-tls libraries (/usr/lib/libnvidia-tls.so.x.y.z and
/usr/lib/tls/libnvidia-tls.so.x.y.z); these files provide thread
local storage support for the NVIDIA OpenGL libraries (libGL,
libGLcore, and libglx). Each nvidia-tls library provides support
for a particular thread local storage model (such as ELF TLS),
and the one appropriate for your system will be loaded at run time.
Before I reinstall the nvidia driver I removed files from the previous install. At boot time I've seen NV-tils doing some kind of load. I don't see the file load now.
driftboy:/usr/lib# ls /usr/lib/libnvidia-tls.so.x.y.z
ls: /usr/lib/libnvidia-tls.so.x.y.z: No such file or directory
driftboy:/usr/lib# ls /usr/lib/tls/libnvidia-tls.so.x.y.z
ls: /usr/lib/tls/libnvidia-tls.so.x.y.z: No such file or directory
Problems will arise if applications use the wrong version of a library.
This can be the case if there are either old libGL libraries or stale
symlinks left lying around. If you think there may be something awry
in your installation, check that the following files are in place
(these are all the files of the NVIDIA Accelerated Linux Driver Set,
plus their symlinks):
driftboy:/usr/lib# ls /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.o
ls: /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.o: No such file or directory
driftboy:/usr/lib# ls /usr/lib/libGL.so.x.y.z
ls: /usr/lib/libGL.so.x.y.z: No such file or directory
driftboy:/usr/lib# ls /usr/lib/libGL.so.x
