[SOLVED] Display driver: "couldn't open module nv"

Hello!

I'm on the way to a proper arch linux system and building the GUI. As shown in

 $ lspci -k | grep -A 2 -E "(VGA|3D)"
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation MCP89 [GeForce 320M] (rev a2)
	Subsystem: Apple Inc. MCP89 [GeForce 320M]
	Kernel driver in use: nouveau

I have installed xorg-server, xorg-xinit and   xf86-video-nouveau .

EDIT: Here is my ~/.xinitrc:

#!/bin/sh

userresources=$HOME/.Xresources
usermodmap=$HOME/.Xmodmap
sysresources=/etc/X11/xinit/.Xresources
sysmodmap=/etc/X11/xinit/.Xmodmap

# merge in defaults and keymaps

if [ -f $sysresources ]; then

    xrdb -merge $sysresources

fi

if [ -f $sysmodmap ]; then
    xmodmap $sysmodmap
fi

if [ -f "$userresources" ]; then

    xrdb -merge "$userresources"

fi

if [ -f "$usermodmap" ]; then
    xmodmap "$usermodmap"
fi

# start some nice programs

if [ -d /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d ] ; then
 for f in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/?*.sh ; do
  [ -x "$f" ] && . "$f"
 done
 unset f
fi

# start kde
exec startkde

END OF EDIT.

If I do startx to start my kde-plasma, I get the following errors in /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

[    30.240] (II) Server terminated successfully (0). Closing log file.

In the Wiki I read:

Xorg searches for installed drivers automatically:
    If it cannot find the specific driver installed for the hardware (listed below), it first searches for fbdev (xf86-video-fbdev).
    If that is not found, it searches for vesa (xf86-video-vesa), the generic driver, which handles a large number of chipsets but does not include any 2D or 3D acceleration.
    If vesa is not found, Xorg will fall back to kernel mode setting, which includes GLAMOR acceleration (see modesetting(4)).

So I guess, I have to specify, that xorg loads nouveau first and ignore the other drivers.
Is this true? How can I do this?
Blacklisting nv, fbdev and vesa doesn't change anything.

Thank you very much for your help!

Re: [SOLVED] Display driver: "couldn't open module nv"

So far everything looks fine. Are you actually telling something to start on the X server?

Re: [SOLVED] Display driver: "couldn't open module nv"

No, I'm just starting it from the shell with

startx

I've added ~/.xinitrc to my original post, maybe that helps.

Re: [SOLVED] Display driver: "couldn't open module nv"

That should work. Check the journal, I'm guessing something isn't working in kde/plasma.

Thank you!

Here is the output:

$ journalctl -p err..alert -b

Nov 11 11:51:00 arche kglobalaccel5[575]: Could not connect to any X display.

I've searched for relevant information for this errors, but didn't find any. What do they mean and what can I do next?

Actually kde is able to start and I'm able to start a graphical session.

EDIT:
The MMIO write FAULTs appear even before I've started an Xsession. So, I'm not sure, if this causes the error.
Furthermore the message "could not connect to any X display" doesn't appear each time after startx.

All in all, I have no idea what to do with this errors, so I would be very thankful for any advice. Would it be a good idea, to install the nvidia drivers instead of nouveau?

Re: [SOLVED] Display driver: "couldn't open module nv"

Like others have said, it appears X is starting fine, but given nothing to run so it exits. Is KDE installed, since that's what your .xinitrc is trying to start? Have you made sure all X dependencies are installed?

Re: [SOLVED] Display driver: "couldn't open module nv"

At the kde-site, I've installed plasma, plasma-meta, kde-l10n-de, sddm and sddm-kcm . I've always installed all packages of the group, so I think, dependencies are installed.

As I said, the message "could not connect to any X display" doesn't appear each time after startx, it's now about one of ten times. I'm able to start the plasma desktop.

The thing, which disturbs me, is that I'm not able to start sddm as default by starting up (it stops at target graphical interface). As I checked several other solutions to this problem which did'nt help, I thought, looking at the mentioned errors would be a good idea.
If the Xorg/kde part is ok and I can ignore the warnings, I'm sorry for regarding at the wrong side of the problem. If this is the case, I propose to open a new thread.

Re: [SOLVED] Display driver: "couldn't open module nv"

For SDDM issues/the occasional startx startup failure, it might be necessary to add your graphics card's kernel modules to your initramfs, as detailed in: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ke … _KMS_start

Re: [SOLVED] Display driver: "couldn't open module nv"

Adding the graphics card's kernel modules to initramfs was indeed the solution!

Thank you all for your answers and help!

Re: [SOLVED] Display driver: "couldn't open module nv"

Read the link in my post: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ke … _KMS_start

Should this not fix your issue, open a new thread instead of necrobumping a 4 year old solved one.

Closing.
