Ubuntu 9.04 installation fail on a pc with nvidia 6200

Asked by cudayne

i dowloaded an burnet an verified the 9.04 but I have the same problem i do with the pervious one it just wont install.

I get no farther then the splash screen before it dumps. I am guessing it has too do with my video card an nividia 6200. is there a easy too understand work around too get it too install?

This problem prevented me from using 8 i was really hopeing would be fixed now but i dont see any work around any help would be apperciated.

also I am downloading 6.06 an going too try too install it maybe if it works installing it then using the update feture an update 6 too 9?

done all that as a matter of fact everything there cheks out. Using teh 32 bit cd.

Once i took out teh nvdia video card the instilation was perfect.

Matter of fact am using it now with the junk on board video card.

I tride too put back the nvidia video card after i let the os run for 12 hours while i messed with the os an installed varius packages.

OS Wouldnt even boot up. take the nvidia vido card out an starts running right away.

So am guessing its a problem with the vid card

yes made cd myself(made 3)
checked iso image

burnt ad quad speed

verified my ram.

thanks for the help guys do apperciate this. i have looked through all the old posts as was sugjested no dice. I tride the instlation of teh nvidia drivers but sence teh vido card isnt instralled it errors out. with this error...

result could not be parsed
Error in function pulse
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/Envy/packagemanager.py", line 75, in pulse
  File "interface.py", line 65, in updateUi
    numHashes = int(round(numHashes))
TypeError: an integer is required
/usr/bin/envyng: line 4: 3569 Segmentation fault sudo python interface.py

I am positive it is due too the fact the video card isnt installed. is there a way too run the nvidia driver probram in command line from boot up maybe bypassing the graphics mode?

when i try too start the os with the video card in i get a large laundery list of unable too execute stuff.
