Yeah, looks like it.

What you posted before war right. I installed Nvidia drivers from their site and I did get pink shadows all around.

OK I lose. From what I'd seen on IRC nobody'd gotten it to work, but many Nvidia users were complaining and told it was the drivers.

If you're using a newer laptop wih an nVidia 8400 GS install the beta driver 173.08. Definite performance increase, pink shadows are gone, suspend / resume seem to work more reliably. Have fun!

Actually this is a packaging problem that I may have figured out today. We'll see. Either way, not nvidia's fault, if you install their driver directly it works fine. Our package is broken.

Who says they bought it to use with Linux? It could be a hand-me-down and they can't afford to replace it. Heck, if they bought it a year ago, the answer to "what do I get?" was "Intel or Nvidia. ATI is evil" because ATI has traditionally sucked when it comes to drivers for any platform, but especially for Linux.

More like the ball is in the end users' court. Everyone is free to NOT buy a computer with hardware that doesn't come with free drivers. ATI will deliver quality soon and Intel has been doing so for years now. Bug Nvidia, indeed.

And since the link he provided is a 404, his solution is to install nvidia.com's drivers instead of Ubuntu's, which will mean having to recompile the drivers after every kernel upgrade, so if you decide to do this, you are forewarned (and yes, this means no X (ie no graphics) while recompiling those drivers for each new kernel).
