Latest NVIDIA drivers, Ubuntu Edgy

NVIDIA drivers not loading after the latest Ubuntu update? Low resolution mode?

They used to work didn't they?

Before you start uninstalling Ubuntu packages and installing the official NVIDIA drivers, throwing your hands up and generally having a bad day, try this:

(as root): echo nvidia >> /etc/modules

Reboot. Should work now.

For some reason, you need to explicitly load the module with the latest nvidia packages (I'm using nvidia-glx-new)
