[SOLVED] What's going here?

Postby nomko on Mon Feb 25, 2013 9:08 pm

Hi everyone!
Just did a new/fresh/clean install of Mint 14 Cinnamon 64-bit. And after the installation i installed the nvidia-current driver using Software Source > Additional driver's. But when i run this command:
Code: Select all
inxi -G

i get this:
nomko@mint14 ~ $ inxi -G
Graphics: Card: NVIDIA G96 [GeForce 9500 GT]
X.Org: 1.13.0 drivers: (unloaded: fbdev,vesa,nouveau) FAILED: nvidia Resolution: 1920x1080@60.0hz
GLX Renderer: GeForce 9500 GT/PCIe/SSE2 GLX Version: 3.3.0 NVIDIA 304.43


That part with says FAILED gives me some weird feeling. What went wrong here? Do i need to run the command nvidia-xconfig?

The lower part of the screen-shot shows that there are no non-free drivers in use. This is still the same after rebooting my system.

Any help would be very much appreciated!
