I can't seem to find anyone with similar problems, but while using BT4 on external HDD via firewire connection, I can't install NVIDIA drivers. The results of:
I get the following:
sudo apt-get install nvidia-drivers
I installed GNOME on this and ctrl-alt-backspace brought up a menu. I tried each option, hoping for something similar to the login screen I had before installing GNOME, but got the same error even when using the 'Safe Mode in Terminal'. How do I install this driver? I have read somewhere before that drivers installing on external USB or Firewire HDDs have a hard time, but I can't seem to find a solution. Any help?
