XFree86 and NVidia
First off I want to say (like probably a lot of people do on this site :P) that I'm new to linux...But I'm learning.
Anyway, I'm trying out a distro "Ubuntu"...Installs fine, but when I try to launch xwindows ("startx" is the command if im not mistaken), it tells me that it can't find any video adapters, and something like "No screens are installed".
Sooo....Having no idea what a command line based editor for linux is (all my linux experiance is through xwindows...go figure), I'm having some difficulty reading or even finding the xwindows configuration files to change or even view them.
Not to mention on installing Ubuntu, the grub boot loader it threw on without asking completely demolished my windows boot loader without the option to boot into windows...That took forever and a half to figure out how to get back into this POS OS :P.
Anyway, any help with this would be appreciated, this is the first distro I've tried using on my Nvidia 6800 GT, but I've never had any problems in the past with my old Nvidia 5900...But who knows
Anyway, if you can't help no big deal, I'll just find another distro or something..Thanks
