I recommend completely uninstalling the manually installed nvidia driver and using one from synaptic.
Probably nvidia-experimental-310, since you're keen on using 3.7.
In the directory with the .run file:
- Code: Select all
sudo sh NVIDIA* --uninstall
sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
sudo apt-get install linux-source //may be named differently, depending on where you got this kernel. Just make sure it's for 3.7
sudo apt-get install nvidia-experimental-310*
Reboot and it should
work fine. I think it would be a better idea to compile the kernel from source with the nvidia module, but this way is a quick & dirty solution.
