Getting to Ubuntu 8.04 from 7.04 was a nightmare and resulted in my wife not
being able to watch a couple of shows when she wanted. I seemed to have
fallen into the NVIDIA driver trap as well. I finally resolved the issue by

NVIDIA drivers from the Ubuntu repositories. I didn't even have to use
I suggest a clean install and then copy your mythconverg DB over.
