I've just installed feisty on my pc which has an nvidia 7900GS card.
When I first loaded ubuntu live from the cd i could only see the top half of the screen twice!!!(same thing up and down). Anyway, I installed and X wouldn't start. following advise found on the internet i did sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx nvidia-kernel-common and then sudo nvidia-glx-config enable. X started but the whole screen is blury (as if I suddenly need glasses), there are white lines over the menu bar as if i have a tv with not a good signal and the opion "enable desktop effects" on system-preferences all it does is to make my boarders disappear.
