I have just purchased a new Asus ENGTS450 DirectCU graphics card, Geforce 450. My problem is that I can't get to my desktop with this new card. At first I just simply replaced my old Nvidia card with this new one, but booting freezes after the "staring up logo".
Then I added ubuntu-x-swat PPA and upgraded nvidia driver to version 270.41.03. I think it also upgraded X. But anyway, booting with the new card still freezes.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 with all packages updated.
Does anybody know if this Geforce 450 card will work with Ubuntu 11.04? Oh and I almost forgot, I tried booting 11.04 Beta1 LiveCD with my new Nvidia, and it actually started up into Gnome. But it wasn't using nvidia driver, so no eye candy or smooth desktop environment. Any clues if this Geforce 450 will work with nvidia driver on 11.04?
