Module 'nvidia' is not found.
I guess that you messed up your system somehow. Install nvidia-drivers.

I reinstalled nvidia-drivers and it didn't fix the problem.

That's just a guess, but anyway. My kernel is set to "linux-3.9.0-sabayon".

Code: Select all

david-laptop ~ # eselect kernel list
Available kernel symlink targets:
  [1]   linux-3.8.0-sabayon
  [2]   linux-3.9.0-sabayon *
  [3]   linux-3.9.0-server


My installed nvidia drivers are " x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-313.30#3.9.0-sabayon".

Code: Select all

david-laptop ~ # equo search  x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-313.30#3.9.0-sabayon
>>  @@ Recherche...
>>      @@ Paquet: x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-313.30#3.9.0-sabayon branche: 5, [sabayon-weekly]

>>  Mots-clé:  x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-313.30#3.9.0-sabayon
>>  Trouvé:    1 entry


However, "uname -r" doesn't give me "linux-3.9.0-sabayon".

Code: Select all

david-laptop ~ # uname -r
3.9.0-server


Could this be related ?

You are booting with the wrong kernel, remove linux-server and reboot.

Magic! I got my problem solved by removing linux-server. I don't understand why it got installed in the first place (probably kernel-switcher). And the other thing is I don't understand why my system was booting from linux-server while my "eselect kernel" was pointing to linux-sabayon.

Anyway, thank you very much for your help.

eselect kernel prints the directory the symlink /usr/src/linux is pointing to.
It has nothing to do with the kernel you are booting. Where did you get such information?

I probably misunderstood the "Upgrading the Linux kernel" section of the wiki, but I really thought that the eselect kernel command was used to select the kernel to boot from. I'll definitely have to read it again. And if this can minimize my mistake, english isn't my primary language :wink: .

No, eselect kernel is definitely not that. Make sure to inform the wiki page authors about the mistake if there's written that.
