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


sudo nvidia-xconfig

Then, make sure all work is saved, all other programs are closed, press Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to restart the window server. Hope this helps.
