newest xorg + nvicia-legacy drivers


I use archlinux with KDE as desktop environment, and the nvidia-legacy drivers (as the regular nvidia ones don't work).

In my latest pacman -Syu upgrade, there was a new xorg update included. Ever since I did this, whenever I reboot my computer, log in and start KDE, it sais that no display device was found and some errors about nvidia-legacy. So then I login as superuser, type pacman -S nvidia-legacy, and this reinstalls nvidia-legacy. Then I go back to my user, start KDE again, and it works.

And the next reboot, it's again the same, so basically, every time I reboot I have to reinstall the nvidia-legacy drivers.

Any ideas why and how I can fix this?

Sorry I can't paste any of the errors, how to copypaste errors from the console before I got into the graphical desktop, into this graphical mozilla window??

Re: newest xorg + nvicia-legacy drivers

From the nvidia wiki:
Modify Arch rc.conf file:
Add nvidia to /etc/rc.conf modules section (not needed anymore if you run xorg and udev). Needed for nvidia-legacy and kernel >=2.6.13!
after that it should work
