I just got the Alienware m17x w/ Dual 280M + 9400M graphics setup. I installed Kubuntu 9.04 without issues and installed all updates. When I install the 190.18 Beta driver, all I get is a blank screen once X starts. I know that it is running because if I blindly do Alt+Ctl+F1 login and type reboot, it reboots the system as expected.
I have tried all the various things suggested on this forum as well as the ubuntu and nvnews forums. Nothing seems to work.
I have attaced my bug report… I am not what you would call a gifted programmer and the output of the bug report means nothing to me.
