I'm trying to get Ubuntu 14.04 32-bit working on an old Dell Dimension 4300. I installed from a DVD and it installed fine except it was incredibly slow.
- I installed Compiz to remove window effects but it was still horribly slow.
- I installed
mesa-utilsto test if 3D acceleration was working, which it wasn't.
- I tried going to
additional drivers, but that says no drivers are available.
- I tried going to NVIDIA's site for drivers and tried installing them from the terminal but I got an error complaining about
- I tried
sudo apt-get install nvidia-311and got a similar error.
Its now booting into a black screen with no user feedback. Any ideas would be appreciated.
