all. I recently bombed my Zorin OS 9 system by unsuccessfully installing kernel 4.0 so I decided to go back to Ubuntu - which I haven't used since 10.04 - and am stumbling across some issues. First is when I boot. ACPI PPC Probe failed. Starting version 219 NVIDIA. Evem after I ran the troubleshooting steps here ACPI PPC PROBE I still get the error after purging all nVidia drivers, though it does eventually boot using the noveau driver. But therein lies a second problem. The second issue is I can't get Steam to star. It won't launch at all from the GUI and when I try to open from terminal I get the following errors:
lerner@ubuntu15:~$ steam Running Steam on ubuntu 15.04 32-bit STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(1428965940) libGL error: unable to load driver: nouveau_dri.so libGL error: driver pointer missing libGL error: failed to load driver: nouveau libGL error: unable to load driver: swrast_dri.so libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast
I've tried the answer here and while it works there's a ton of artifacts on my system when I attempt to play a game. What would be causing the crash between nVidia, Steam,and 15.04 on kernel 3.19? I would really like my system to have the proprietary nVidia drivers as it runs significantly better.
System setup: E5300 Dual Core at 2.6GHz, 4GB RAM, 25GB Swap, 1GB GeForce 610 GT
Edit: tried to launch BioShock Infinite which I can play with nVidia drivers and it crashed hard
