Nvidia Driver Problems...

can anyone help me :frowning: ?

i get the error “SystemError: Failed to lock /var/cache/apt/archives/lock” when i try to install or “Activate” the driver for Nvidia Graphics :frowning:

Have you got Synaptic open… if so close it, and try again

Only one program can call on apt at any one time, that includes the Hardware Drivers application, apt-get, synaptic, or the update manager, and probably the Software Center/Manager.

i see. so there isnt anything wrong then?

ubuntu is updating itself just now… is that why?

Nope nothing wrong, when updates are finished, try again

wooooo :smiley:
