NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version 185) failing after upgrading to karmic

Asked by Jonas G. Drange on 2009-10-13

Dist upgraded. After reboot, the Ubuntu logo was displayed for 20 seconds then it all went black. After waiting 5 minutes, I rebooted and started a shell as root via recovery mode. Removing xorg.conf made GDM start.

When I go to "Hardware drivers", I see two drivers, 173 and 185. 173 works, albeit with some issues. 185 fails every time.
