As a follow-up to my last post, anyone using an Nvidia graphics card with the Nvidia Linux drivers may want to hold-off on upgrading to Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat. I jumped the gun, did zero research, and found myself stuck with screwed up Nvidia drivers and no graphical interface. Unfortunately, this seems like a common issue right now.
Luckily, I had kept the Nvidia drivers in my Downloads directory, so I was able to remove the bad drivers and reinstall them. That means I'm using the same drivers, but they needed to be reconfigured. The reinstall process fixed it with no hassle. If you're caught without the drivers pre-downloaded then you might be looking at a more complicated or difficult fix. You can also switch back to the vesa drivers before upgrading.
On a side note, upgrading fixed my audio issues. When I finally booted up 10.10 with the graphical login I heard the startup sounds for the first time. At least that was a nice surprise.
