Really? All those source files and the only thing they do is remove 2
lines? I tried using nano to remove the 2 lines you note and recompiled
the drivers. Now when x windows starts it crashes my whole ubuntu. I
logged into terminal to try and delete the bad drivers but when I use cd
/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers it says that directory doesn't exist. ls
shows the whole /usr/lib/ directory is different than the last time I
looked at it. Where did all my files go?

Actually I do have xserver-xorg-dev installed just not version 184.108.40.2061
which is the requirement. I have the latest version installed which is
all that apt-get will give me the option to install. I have no idea
where to get the version I need for the package.
