I am using Ubuntu 10.04 x86 version.I have two video cards ( 1 integrated and 1 Nvidia on inter core-i5 processor with 3GB ram).Right now my display resolution is very poos as i cant use graphic card. I tried a lot of methods (including sudo apt-get remove nvidia*; sudo apt-get install nvidia-current) to install driver for Nvidia Geforce but failed.
Here is output of
lshw -c video
*-display description: VGA compatible controller product: nVidia Corporation vendor: nVidia Corporation physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:01:00.0 version: a1 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: bus_master cap_list rom configuration: driver=nvidia latency=0 resources: irq:16 memory:f0000000-f0ffffff memory:c0000000-cfffffff(prefetchable) memory:d0000000-d1ffffff(prefetchable) ioport:3000(size=128) memory:f1080000-f10fffff(prefetchable) *-display UNCLAIMED description: VGA compatible controller product: Intel Corporation vendor: Intel Corporation physical id: 2 bus info: pci@0000:00:02.0 version: 09 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: bus_master cap_list configuration: latency=0 resources: memory:f1400000-f17fffff memory:e0000000-efffffff(prefetchable) ioport:4000(size=64)
As shown in the output (width:64 bit), shall I install x64 version of Ubuntu to make drivers work? or what should i do to make them work ?
I am following this post for installation. Whenever I execute
sudo gdm-stop , i am not getting terminal or any screen. Even on CTRL+ALT+F2 i am not getting terminal screen(just a blank screen with no promt). How to go?
