    I'm trying to install some packages to get my geforce card working in 3d
    mode and am a total novice. I was following the steps in the ubuntu help files for hardware "How do I install the 3D Nvidia video card driver?"

    I got up to "Install the nvidia-glx and nvidia-settings packages with Synaptic

    Miscellaneous - Graphical (restricted) > nvidia-glx "
    (this seemed to work)

    Then tried "Miscellaneous - Graphical (restricted) > nvidia-settings"
    This failed!

    When i use synaptic, i get what you see below.

    I seem to have connectivity otherwise, but it's a pain. Strangely, this
    was working the other day. I don't know if it's relevant but the ntp
    server can't be found as ubuntu boots up either.

    Can anyone tell me what's going wrong?

    Thanks!

    Brett.

    Looks like a connection error. Make sure you're connected to everything
    properly, and it it still doesn't work, I'd reset all of the repos. If
    it still doesn't work, try using apt in the console.
