lightdm restart problem

Asked by shatil06 on 2011-10-20

i have just installed Ubuntu 11.10 32 bit version on my Lenovo Thinkpad T410 64 bit laptop and my kernel version is 3.0.0-12-generic-pae and NVIDIA Driver Version:285.05.09.

Unfortunately my lightdm restarts frequently without notice, specially i noticed it while i'm going to read offline messages of skype.

Do you have any suggestion or if you need any other information, please let me know.

Thanks 'andrew-woodhead666', the exact point of error.
I have removed older nvidida driver installed and it works fine.

Thanks a lot..

I used below PPA and commands for nvidia driver installation:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current

Sweet :)
