Manually install Nvidia drivers on Ubuntu 8.10
For some strange reason, the restrictred hardware drivers that used to work for installing the nvidia drivers on ubuntu freezed/hanged on two computers i tried already. So I somehow found this useful.
Open the Accessories > Terminal and enter
sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-177
Then, make sure all work is saved, all other programs are closed, press Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to restart the window server. Hope this helps.
