        From Nvidia 180.18 I can no longer install the drivers. X wont start.

        My normal way of installing is:
        Ctrl + Alt + F1
        sudo /etc/init.d/kdm stop
        sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-XXX.XX-pkg1.run
        sudo /etc/init.d/kdm start

        I always installed the Nvidia drivers this way, and never had any problems.

        Someone suggested to remove anything related to Nvidia (nvidia-kernel-common) from synaptic, but that will also remove linux-generic, linux-restricted-modules- 2.6.24-23-generic, linux-restricted-modules-generic.

        Doesn't that makes other things stop working depending on those packages? I don't dare to remove nvidia-kernel-common as I expect other things might stop working.

        Anyone has a suggestion?

        Running Kubuntu 8.04 btw.

          Is it just me, or does the speed of Nvidia's releases seemed to have picked up?

            *sigh*
            180.25 came out, and I'm still waiting for 180.22 to hit the openSUSE repos. Ah well. It's not like anything terribly new and exciting is in store for my Geforce 6200 with these new releases.

              @Eazy

              You forgot one major step after kdm stop:

              sudo rmmod nvidia

                  init 3 does nothing on pure debian/ubuntu as it is the same as runlevel 2, 4 and 5.

                    Does anyone use an external monitor? I'm using 177.82 and I have serious problems with the external projector starting correctly (on Ubuntu 9.10). It doesn't work at all when I'm using visual effects, and I still am not even though the secondary display shows a desktop without desktop affects it eventually hangs my entire system and I have to do a hard reboot. I wonder if this area is improved in any of the releases since 177.82.
