Nvidia 7300 gt driver kubuntu





kevinalle
Hi.
I am changing to linux.
I just installed Kubuntu. I have an AMD X2 64 processor with an NVidia GeForce 7300 GT graphics card.
Can anyone help me get the drivers and how to install them?
Thanks a lot,
K

FOUND THE SOLUTION!!!

the definitive solution was written by dalboris in http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=96839

install the linux headers, and what is important for the installation :

(thx to raymondx for all the following commands, it simplify my task )

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essential gcc gcc-3.4 xserver-xorg-dev

uninstall the glx, and all related with nvidia, but not the linux restricted module !!!!

sudo apt-get --purge remove nvidia-glx nvidia-settings nvidia-kernel-common

sudo rm /etc/init.d/nvidia-*

reboot your computer (onlya kdm stop didn't work for me... )

go in console mode and install the driver :

CTRL+ALT+F6+LOG ON TO YOUR KUBUNTU ACCOUNT

sudo /etc/init.d/kdm stop

cd (full directory where you downloaded the installation script)

sudo sh NV (PRESS TAB TO GET THE REST)


GO THROUGH THE INSTALLATION

(in my case, in amd64, and didn't install the 32-bit compatibility, at the and of the installation, and choose to run the nvidia-xconfig utility)

reboot the computer.

hope that could help someone in the future, and thx again for your answers

Ah that's a bit poo. I thought they'd sorted out the 64bit compatibility.
