I think I tried everything I could but I still can't get my Nvidia GTX 260 to run on the newest ubuntu 9.10 x64.

Update: I was able to stop the gdm with sudo service gdm stop

However, after downloading the latest driver from nvdia - I am told that my video card is not supported.

I had a similar problem to, in that when I added 4GB to my laptop, the BIOS was telling the nvidia to use memory within the new 4GB range and not move passed to another location.. so I had to alter the kernel source.. more information can be found here. link text

In essence I had to stop any memory requester within a set range and more the nvidia new request to the new place.

If you want any help just say, if this is the case ?

I don't think that's the problem. When I try to stop gdm I get this: Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8) utility, e.g. service anacron start Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an Upstart job, you may also use the start(8) utility – klapi Feb 17 '10 at 4:06
