COMPUTER: Macbook pro 7'1 (mid 2010) GRAPHIC CARD: NVIDIA 320M
Today, after a fresh install of Ubuntu Quantal Quetzal, I installed the suggested nvidia drivers from terminal by running the following command:
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
But when I rebooted, after chosing Ubuntu from the boot loader, the screen was black and there was nothing I could do...
How can I fix this?
Thank you roadrm for your helpful answer, but I still cannot boot into a usable system even editing the kernel and adding the nomodeset string :( I managed to boot the 3.5.0-17, but my default kernel is the 3.5.0-25 so this doesn't help... I should probably add to the informations that before installing the nvidia-current I also entered the following commands:
sudo apt-get install Linux-source
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic
In order to give The correct headers for the driver :(
