Koala Display Konumdrum


Hi,

Ubuntu 9.10 live on my pen drive or cd finds my appropriate scrn res by default, however on my clean install, 9.10 warns me, each time I boot:

"Ubuntu is running in low graphics mode

The following error was encountered. You may need to update your config to solve this.

(EE) NVIDIA (0) FAILED TO LOAD NVIDIEA MODULE
(EE) ***ABORTING***
(EE) SCREENS FOUND, BUT NONE HAVE USEUABLE CONFIGS"

Then i get 4 options:

"Run in low graphics mode

Reconfig graphics

Troubleshoot error

exit console"


Troubleshoot error leads to four more options

"Review Xserver log file

Review startup errors

Edit config files

Archive config and log"

I don't really understand these options and am hoping someone can give me some simple advice

Try running /usr/bin/nvidia-xconfig to configure your graphics card.
