Question Not sure what is going on here or how to start fixing in 10.04


I am at a loss here. I recently upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 with my multimedia pc. Now xorg is busted and this frustrates me. not only that but using aptitude never works since it is old and that makes downgrading xorg difficult.

10.04 uses the nouveau open source driver for nvidia cards, rename your xorg.conf file to something else and see if xorg will auto detect your video card.

Unhappy No good still

no go on the rename. I made another custom kernel which would have added some features that i might need. it boots but it now flickers. tried changing the xorg.conf driver. still no good. The log file is to big to put in this post

What happens if you change the driver in your xorg.conf from "nv" to "nouveau" I have a nvidia 650se video card and your xorg.conf file seems to work with the "nouveau" driver on my computer.

it is flickering now

Well for one i am using ndivia driver 173.14.25 now and this script to compile the driver into new kernels.

Code:
brian@bmansmediacenter:~$ sudo cat /etc/kernel/postinst.d/update-nvidia
#!/bin/bash
#put in postinst.d and header_postinst.d

# Set this to the exact path of the nvidia driver you plan to use
# It is recommended to use a symlink here so that this script doesn't
# have to be modified when you change driver versions.
DRIVER=/usr/src/nvidia-driver


# Build new driver if it doesn't exist
if [ -e /lib/modules/$1/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko ] ; then
    echo "NVIDIA driver already exists for this kernel." >&2
else
    echo "Building NVIDIA driver for kernel $1" >&2
    sh $DRIVER -K -k $1 -s -n 2>1 > /dev/null

    if [ -e /lib/modules/$1/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko ] ; then
        echo "   SUCCESS: Driver installed for kernel $1" >&2
    else
        echo "   FAILURE: See /var/log/nvidia-installer.log" >&2
    fi
fi

exit 0
and at one point I compiled a module called drm into my kernels which is related to nouveau i believe. I am not sure if the drm module is needed. I think i will uninstall that. not sure how to remove it from my kernels I use a custom kernel because it can only use 384MBs of ram.

and i did this with blacklist

Code:
brian@bmansmediacenter:~$ sudo cat /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
# This file lists those modules which we don't want to be loaded by
# alias expansion, usually so some other driver will be loaded for the
# device instead.

# evbug is a debug tool that should be loaded explicitly
blacklist evbug

# these drivers are very simple, the HID drivers are usually preferred
blacklist usbmouse
blacklist usbkbd

# replaced by e100
blacklist eepro100

# replaced by tulip
blacklist de4x5

# causes no end of confusion by creating unexpected network interfaces
blacklist eth1394

# snd_intel8x0m can interfere with snd_intel8x0, doesn't seem to support much
# hardware on its own (Ubuntu bug #2011, #6810)
blacklist snd_intel8x0m

# Conflicts with dvb driver (which is better for handling this device)
blacklist snd_aw2

# causes failure to suspend on HP compaq nc6000 (Ubuntu: #10306)
blacklist i2c_i801

# replaced by p54pci
blacklist prism54

# replaced by b43 and ssb.
blacklist bcm43xx

# most apps now use garmin usb driver directly (Ubuntu: #114565)
blacklist garmin_gps

# replaced by asus-laptop (Ubuntu: #184721)
blacklist asus_acpi

# low-quality, just noise when being used for sound playback, causes
# hangs at desktop session start (Ubuntu: #246969)
blacklist snd_pcsp

# ugly and loud noise, getting on everyone's nerves; this should be done by a
# nice pulseaudio bing (Ubuntu: #77010)
blacklist pcspkr

# EDAC driver for amd76x clashes with the agp driver preventing the aperture
# from being initialised (Ubuntu: #297750). Blacklist so that the driver
# continues to build and is installable for the few cases where its
# really needed.
blacklist amd76x_edac

blacklist vga16fb
blacklist nouveau
blacklist rivafb
blacklist nvidiafb
blacklist rivatv
brian@bmansmediacenter:~$
and now my issue is the resolution is off center. It is to far to the right I am not sure how to fix that yet. any ideas?

OP, with any operating system I've used, a comprehensive backup of personal files followed by a clean OS install is the way to go.

In the case of desktop machines, installing a new OS onto a 2nd hard drive (each drive being partitioned with a storage volume for backing up/archiving files), and dual-booting with the old OS until the new one proves itself is a further prudent approach to avoiding temporal torture.
