quick question: API mismatch

Solved: I've googled and I can't find a solution other than people 'guessing' at it by loading new software, etc.

My problem is I have a mismatch when starting up ubuntu. It complains that I have different version of kernal module and x driver (or something like that).

The way I get into X after it fails to boot is (from the prompt)

[HTML]sudo rmmod nvidia
sudo modprobe nvidia
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start[/HTML]

This works evertime. What do I need to change to keep this from happening evertime I boot?


Workaround: Modify /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common

DISABLED_MODULES="nvidia nvidia_legacy"

Put those commands into a startup script? Post your xorg file.
