I am running 12.04 with
3.2.0-57-generic-pae kernel on a Lenovo w520 that has a nVidia card in it.
I updated yesterday, (17,December, 2013), and the update included the following two nvidia updates:
nvidia-current-updates:i386 (304.88-0ubuntu0.0.3, 304.108-0ubuntu0.0.1) nvidia-304-updates:i386 (304.88-0ubuntu0.0.3, 304.108-0ubuntu0.0.1)
The error message I see is the same as someone else posted on another forum:
[ 29.393] (II) NVIDIA(0): Creating default Display subsection in Screen section "Default Screen Section" for depth/fbbpp 24/32 [ 29.393] (==) NVIDIA(0): Depth 24, (==) framebuffer bpp 32 [ 29.393] (==) NVIDIA(0): RGB weight 888 [ 29.393] (==) NVIDIA(0): Default visual is TrueColor [ 29.393] (==) NVIDIA(0): Using gamma correction (1.0, 1.0, 1.0) [ 29.393] (**) NVIDIA(0): Enabling 2D acceleration [ 29.402] (EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module.

The answer given to them was to run the
nvidia-config program and then restart the system.
I do not have an
nvidia-config utility on my system.
My question is how do I either back out these updates which caused the problem, is there another update currently available somewhere that will fix the problem, where can I get the
nvidia-config utility to hopefully correct the problem, or what can I do to get back to where I can use the system with X functional?
