Before installing the new Nvidia 331.20 drivers on my Ubuntu 12.04 32bit I decided to update the kernel to 3.12.6 then I start to run the Nvidia update script.
So I switched to terminal mode turned off lightdm
sudo service lightdm stop
then seeing that I tried installing Nvidia 319 in the past purged Nvidia*
sudo apt-get purge Nvidia*
may not have been the smartest idea, unhindered I decided to run the script anyway
sudo sh Nvidia*
after clicking next to the prompts, I got a warning about not being able to install to the dkms so using the prompt options decided to not add it to the dkms "cause why not! famous last words". Then I got an error about not being able to install "Unified memory kernal" so I just ran the script with the option
--no-unified-memory and SUCCESS I rebooted. The startup looked great... Then the screen looks like a netbook 640x480.
So I open Nvidia X server only to find nvidia is not being used run
nvidia-xconfig restart lightdm and still no luck. I do know how to revert back to the Nvidia 304 but I would like to get the new Nvidia drivers working. All help is appreciated does anyone knowhow to add Nvidia to the dkms or would that be a waste of time?
