So I got everything to run on the Amazon-provided Ubuntu 14.04 AMI ubuntu-trusty-14.04-amd64 . Below is my setup code. I kept the old answer attached below as well, for people to find in Google.

Sadly I haven't found the answer myself yet, but here is some breadcrumbs on the way:

I installed the NVIDIA drivers

(if you get an error because of nouveau drivers, check here)

Next install XServer

And generate the xconfig (as per other stack overflow question)

Weirdly this generates a file in /etc/X11/XF86Config, so I copied that to /etc/X11/xorg.conf, in order for X to pick it up.

Now running the Xserver gives the following error for me:

One answer in that stack overflow question says to choose the bus, which results in this error:

Whatever that means. Looking back at the log reveals, that apparently the NVIDIA driver is not loaded at all (although tried):

Now this post suggests, that the module path has to be set manually in the conf:

Anyways, this seems to actually load the driver module and then crashes:

I have two sounds cards, one is the on-board (it's VIA) the other is Cirrus Logic cs46xx. This is what lspci shows me:04:04.0 Multimedia audio controller: Cirrus Logic CS 4614/22/24/30 [CrystalClear SoundFusion Audio Accelerator] (rev 01)
It only show the cirrus logic, cause I disable the VIA card through BIOS.

This page: gives me instructions to install it, but I can follow them because the folders indicates in the page do not matches with the ones that I see in my system.

The alsa page:, also give me instructions, but I don't understand it. For example, they say: type in a terminal: ./configure but don't say in what directory. I think that isn't instructions for begginers..

Right now I can't heard anything.

I decide to disable the VIA audio card, cause I've read they don't get along with linux, although i use the integrate VIA video card.

I have ubuntu 11.10

snd-cs46xx is a Linux kernel module supporting Cirrus Logic's Sound Fusion CS46xx audio controllers. It is an ALSA driver included in the Linux kernel.

At linux-2.6 2.6.23-1, the binary-only firmware in this driver was removed (see the package changelog), due to discovered firmware licensing issues. The driver was disabled at this time. Firmware was also removed from the alsa-source package to resolve bug 483918.

At linux-2.6 2.6.31-1~experimental.1, the snd-cs46xx driver was re-enabled and patched to use firmware from userspace (resolving Debian bug 464197).

Device firmware is unable to be distributed by the Debian project, as the snd-cs46xx driver has no license.1 A free redistribution license has been requested from Cirrus Logic.2
