I have an Asus u30jc laptop, which comes with the Optimus prime graphics card switching technology that is now supported under 2.6.35, so I decided to give it a try. First I made sure the discrete graphics card was activated and then I installed the drivers proposed by the ubuntu software repository (nvidia-current).
However, after rebooting all I got was a command prompt.
My graphics card is a nvidia 310M. This is on Ubuntu 10.10 64 bits.
What can I do to diagnose/identify the source of this problem?
UPDATE: The messsages in my syslog tell me to check the xorg log:
Oct 11 12:42:59 u30jc-test gdm-binary: WARNING: GdmDisplay: display lasted 0.053144 seconds Oct 11 12:42:59 u30jc-test gdm-simple-slave: WARNING: Unable to load file '/etc/gdm/custom.conf': No such file or directory Oct 11 12:42:59 u30jc-test gdm-binary: WARNING: GdmDisplay: display lasted 0.038176 seconds Oct 11 12:42:59 u30jc-test gdm-binary: WARNING: GdmLocalDisplayFactory: maximum number of X display failures reached: check X server log for errors
Which I did. I found this message in my /var/log/Xorg.0.log :
Fatal server error: [ 113.540] no screens found [ 113.540]
What does that mean?
