Trouble installing latest nvidia drivers in Jaunty
I just installed Ubuntu Jaunty on my Core-2 duo desktop machine. The install went fine, but I am doing CUDA work and need recent versions of the NVIDIA drivers. I downloaded the latest version for Intrepid (maybe that's my problem) version 185.18.08-beta. I cleared the various nvidia-glx files and restricted modules. Then I did a ctrl-alt-F1, logged in and "sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop, got an OK, and then "sudo sh <driver_file_name>". Unfortunately I get "ERROR: You appear to be running an X server" message. I went back to an earlier driver (180.22) (which I successfully used in Intrepid) and tried again. It also fails in the same way. Is there any way of installing a recent nvidia driver in Jaunty?
