Installation hang up in Ubuntu


Linux newbie on a fresh install of ubuntu.

When trying to enable my Nvidia drivers from system/admin/hardware drivers I enter a Installation/removal dialog and it hangs up.

nvidia-glx: subprocess post-removal script returned error exit status 2

Details:

removing nvidia-glx
dpkg-divert: error checking `user/lib32/libGL.so.1' No such file or directory

dpkg: error encountered while processing:
nvidia-glx

E:subprocess /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
A package failed to install. Trying to Recover:



I also tried to remove it/reinstall it in Synaptic package manager and once again got

nvidia-glx: subprocess post-removal script returned error exit status 2



Any help would be appreciated.

you don't mention what version you are using.

Did you try running the live cd with it and see if it can load properly?

Also 7.04 is rock solid and I haven't had many issues with it, maybe try installing that version first?

Jimbo13: Envy is an alternative application which downloads and installs for you the latest nVidia drivers. Google Envy. I think it's in the official repos. Try this:
Code:
sudo apt-get install envy
