Bug Description

In an attempt to improve my graphics, I installed the nvidia-glx driver and enabled it. This did not recognize my graphics card. How do I uninstall this driver, and return to my original graphics mode?

The command:

     lspci | grep VGA

returns:

     00:05.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C51 [GeForce 6150 LE] (rev a2)

Also, I am not able to edit files in the /etc/X11 directory, by mv or cp commands to return to any of the xorg.conf.failsafe.* files.

Thank you,

Robert
