xorg freezes after upgrade

Post by lorebett » Sat Feb 21, 2009 15:20

I've just done an equo update && equo world;
many packages were upgraded, including ATI drivers (I have an ATI graphical card)...
after a reboot, when I log into kde, the desktop is loaded but then the screen turns black with only the mouse cursor...

any clue please?

Try as root in a Terminal window:

Code: Select all

module-rebuild list
to see what modules are listed in the module database. You may find ATI driver packages referenced in there that are no longer installed. Delete them by doing an:

Code: Select all

module-rebuild del x11-drivers/ati-drivers-<version>
If the new ati-drivers is not listed, then add it by doing an:

Code: Select all

module-rebuild add x11-drivers/ati-drivers-<version>

I haven't tried your solution, but I tried to remove all the kde files (.kde .kderc) and then log again; kde rebuilt all the files and now I have a working kde desktop (without the sabayon them), which works also with 3d effects (not perfectly, though, due to ati issues). So the problem was the old sabayon kde desktop, I assume...
