*NO_X after update**

Post by bill_cooper » Mon Oct 07, 2013 19:31

I tested and installed 13.08 kde without a problem.
I then upgrade and upon reboot i got no x.
had to boot from previous kernel 3.10
am in X on old kernel now .

I have an nvidia card (lspci ____>01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation G96M [GeForce 9600M GS] (r)

any guidance to help is appreciated
I dont mind opensource drivers and I dont mind and I would actually prefer staying on 3.10 as its a lts... so if I could be directed on the simplest and most solid way of switching to nouveau drivers and making 3.10 default
all guidance is appreciated
thank you

to switch nvidia to nouveau -- uninstall the nvidia driver and install the nouveau driver, rename your xorg file and reboot and it should rebuild it properly
