Upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid). Lost video.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module!
July 24, 2010
- These failed
- sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
- sudo kpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
- These didn't exist
- This worked but is it right?
- line 39 change nvidia to nv
- Turns out Kubuntu 10.04 "Lucid Lynx" comes
with the nouveau driver installed by default.
Nouveau is an open source driver for Nvidia
hardware. They did not update my xorg.conf.

Power went down in middle of apt-get upgrade. Tried to get it back and
computer said it was broke and needed
sudo dpkg --configure -a.
Then it took a lot of reboot, apt-get check, apt-get clean, apt-get autoclean, reboot.

Adding NTP /etc/ntp.conf
From Ryan to see why two web pages are running, netstat -anp | less

Trying for mysql4.0 again.
Set the password for mysql root user. See /usr/share/doc/mysql-server/README.Debian
to enable networking, comment out skip-networking in /etc/mysql/my.cnf
samba is NETBEUI
/var/cache/apt/archives dpkg -i
/etc/kde2/kdm/Xservers for dpi
I have major problems with the common data base for apt-get and dselect.
I can't seem to get debian's mysql 4.0. I'm stuck with 3.23. I can
download it seperatly but then I would also have to get PHP seperatly.
I don't want to do that.
/etc/apache/httpd.conf line 783 AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
bypassed dselect with apt-get, installed
1 alsa-base I have no idea what this is
2 dpkg-reconfigure atlas2-3dnow
3 dpkg-reconfigure atlas2-sse
4 dpkg-reconfigure atlas2-sse2
5 added then removed kooka scanner software that
comes with a warning,
it will fry the scanner.
7-6-04 must read "Linux Network Administrators' Guide"
Changing to lcd monitor. Resetting /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
with dexconf, the DEBCONF utility by typing the command
"lspci" gives you SiS chipset information. Audio and video
chipsets are there.
Lots of upgrades, apt-get and dselect complained about
a missing file and refused to do that. Used "aptitude" to get the
list and then apt-get install.
apt-get remove mesag-dev glut
Downloaded mesa3d. In "/root/Downloads/Mesa-6.2.1" did "make linux-x86".
If you want glut again you must "make realclean".
Put .h and lib files in
Added "export CLASSPATH=." to ".bashrc" to get the java command
to work in the kde bash shell.
For the non-gui login I had to change "/etc/profile" add
export CLASSPATH PS1
Otherwise you had to "java -classpath . fileName"
or "java -cp . fileName"
Adobe Reader and FlashPlayer are in
On different days during a heat wave all three computers crashed.
Debian's hard drive is scrambled.
Rerouted internet traffic to Kubuntu on D-Link router.
We are and have been on amd64-kubuntu for a while now.
