Help to Install Cuda


I have problems with Cuda on my notebook.
OS - Linux Ubuntu 10.10 32 bit.
videocard - GeForce 410M

After install driver, nvidia created xorg.conf file. After rebooting I saw message:

  • Enabling additional executable binary formats binfmt-support [ok]
  • Checking battery state… [ok]

but graphic interface is not start. I can press ctrl+alt+f1 and saw terminal.

All work if I delete xorg.conf, but driver is not install.

Can somebody help me?

Sorry for my English.

Installing the developer driver on Ubuntu is straitforward, however, I think you need to make sure you install the driver stoping the x-server first. Try this tutorial

thank you for help, but its not help.

I write commands:

sudo stop gdm

installing driver.

When nvidia driver ask if i want to reconfigure xorg.conf i accept.

Ifter rebooting i saw terminal and when I pressed ctrl+alt+f7 I saw black screen with some messages of loading linux.

After deleted xorg.conf file system loaded.

this is file xorg.conf:
