i was set to the wrong opengl settings, but that was not my problem.

n the end i had to use the .run from nvidia directly. equo, the package manager for sabayon failed horridly at dealing with the kernal portion of the driver install. once i installed via ./sh NVI....run and rebooted, it is working again.

i now have access to my desktop once again.

lesson learned. do not trust package managers for drivers.

also, you need to know something.
If you video board, is not a new model, may be better not update the driver....
your error in GDM, seems to me that the new driver is not good for your video board.
not certain, but have a possiblity that you may need to dowgrade the driver again.

no it shouldn't - working for others, you're not doing something or not understanding it correctly. Installing from nvidia site is a no no

it is very possible that i do not UNDERSTAND something.

all i did was the following.

1. equo update
2. equo world update
3. equo install nvidia-driver
4. GUI crashed see notes above.
5. followed steps here and from other sites to no avail.
6. installed from raw .run from nvidia, GUI restored to working order. coming to you now from KDE instead of winXP.

to me it looks like equo failed to compile the nvidia drivers to my kernel that has been updated since the system was built a few months ago. that would also explain the error msg in the X log files. no? or am i reading that wrong?

the only other distro i have experience with installing video drivers is Debian. older v. of Debian failed much like equo did today if you apt-get upgrade and that includes a kernel update. not so much now. back then the only solution was to also install from Nvidia their package, much harder before they created the .run package. Then Debian started getting repositories for nvidia drivers. that made life simpler if you had the correct repository, but you had to have the exact version for it to work. today it just works.

i did not emerge as i am liking equo as the package manager. it is immature, but it is clean and simple. i like that.

immature compaired to YUM or apt, and of those 2 i prefer apt 10x to YUM. YUM is slow and clunky and not as good at resolving dependency issues as apt is.

I have a very similar problem to yours.
I recently updated to 2.6.26 kernel and the newest nVidia drivers, but after a reboot, I got no Compiz.
Thinking it was the drivers, I rolled back to a previous version and tried booting from an older kernel (2.6.25-r1).
Now, no matter what kernels or drivers I install or recompile, I get no X whatsoever.
I tried all the fixes mentioned in the last two pages and I get nothing.

Re: equo install nvidida-drivers killed gdm

Post by lleb » Fri Oct 10, 2008 22:16

looks like the exact same situation i had. with my limited knowledge on both linux and even less with the workings of gentoo/sabayon i have to say equo is not compiling the driver against the kernel and thus failing to build the kernel portion of the driver thus the failure we are seeing.

my fix, yes wolf says is bad and a no no (i do agree it is not the best way to fix it) was to manually install the drivers directly from Nvidia as i posted above.

glad to see it is not just me having this exact issue.

if you equo world - it puts in the new kernel - so after equo world you have to equo install the nvidia drivers to match the kernel and than you need to run the eselect command.

This works, it's been done time and time again

I JUST NOW (re)ran every step stated in this guide, and nothing worked.
I ran

Code: Select all

equo world
, reinstalled the 2.6.26 Sabayon kernel, recompiled it, reinstalled the nVidia drivers, set OpenGL to nVidia, and tried to restart X. I got nothing.
So I rebooted and still got no X.
I recompiled my kernel AGAIN, reinstalled the nVidia drivers, set OpenGL back to nVidia, and tried restarting X. Again, I got nothing.

I nopasted my xorg.conf and my most recent Xorg.0.log file.

http://rafb.net/p/LeYarC51.html xorg.conf


So tell me, what am I doing wrong?
