After the recent update, the
service fails to start. syslog socket is not able to load.
kdm fails to load, and I am asked to login to console.
Any ideas on how to fix this?
I am asked to login to console.
Are you able to login on the console and get a working command line?
Yes. console login works just fine.
But if I startx from console it says modprobe can't locate 'nvidia' and X fails to launch.
To check if 'nvidia' is really missing look here:
No, nvidia.ko.gz is present.
