Are you sad if you're not happy?
Are you running Windows when Linux got broken?
-> No! You'll fix it So be happy!
a how-to as your first post. that is always great
only thing i was wondering when reading this is 'where is the link to the NVIDIA driver?'
of course you can Google it, but would be more logical (to me) to include the link in the how-to, for ease-of-use purposes.
that said, why don't you head over to the Introductions subforum and get yourself a real welcome from the community?

You trying different things makes it difficult to guess what went wrong.
If you could post the output of
it would help.
I re-installed CrunchBang. I'll be starting from scratch. Following the instructions on this thread, now I get:
Building kernel module:
(I see a progress bar go to 100%)
ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. etc...

I guess you dont have the linux headers installed:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
Then restart the command that produced the error.
If you get the same error, post the output of the command:
sudo cat /var/log/nvidia-installer.log
in this forum.
The full output is to long to post here. The first error I get is:
test -e include/generated/autoconf.h -a -e include/config/auto.conf || ( \
echo " ERROR: Kernel configuration is invalid."; \
echo " include/generated/autoconf.h or include/config/auto.conf are
echo " Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it
Attempting to enter:
sudo make oldconfig
make: *** No rule to make target 'oldconfig'. Stop
Same with make prepare.

After black screens from other non-CLI solutions I tried this and everything popped up with all monitors working perfectly.
How can you uninstall the nvidia driver if i wanna use the open source driver again?
