Did it work well on other versions of ubuntu?
This is a new machine (compaq). I have another machine here - Gateway with
nvidia, which is older and I have not had that experience with older
versions of ubuntu.
The compaq machine in question just did something on it's own as I was typing to
you on the Gateway. It went blank for just a second and then the screen
BTW: Since I started this thread, I have installed the proprietory
nvidia driver (recommended one) on both the compaq and the gateway, but
the compaq is obviously still acting goofy.
I really appreciate the reply.
