- If a computer is not able to boot and if you are not able to log-in sometimes you are still able to have access via terminal:
- Preferences --> Additional Drivers --> wait a while and if proprietary drivers are offered for downlaod.
- NVIDIA driversfrom PPA (source) of developer community
- If your computer is older (built before 2004) it does not make sense as this card is not supported anymore. It is worth a try to use either Lubuntu 12.04 LTS or to use the Labdoo Image for cloning for Lubuntu 12.04 LTS.
Either using CTL+ALT+t (if logged in), CTL+Alt+F3 or follow the GRUB information using the recovery mode:
sudo apt-get purge nvidia-current (Enter)
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic (Enter)
Herefor you have to add an additional source for software (PPA). Please be aware of potential risks of adding sources (PPA) to your computer:
CTL + ALT + F3 (in recovery mode) or CTL + Alt + t if logged-in opens terminal
log-in as user labdoo and password labdoo,
sudo su (enter) + Passwort labdoo eingeben (enter)
