YES!! Thanks so much, I edited the original scripts.  I have bad eyes apparently lol.  I had already done the downgrades manually when I wrote the script which is why it appeared to work for me.  Thanks for the help.  Maybe this will fix the problem for others.

Re: [Solved] -- Xorg server 1.7 + drivers nvidia

Just in case anyone is viewing this via a cached webpage I will post the most up-to-date version of this script for downgrading the xorg drivers so that they are compatible with Nvidia drivers:

wget http://www.schlunix.org/archlinux/extra/os/i686/xf86-video-vesa-2.2.0-1-i686.pkg.tar.gz

#MOVE packages to your pacman directory cache
sudo mv *.pkg.tar.gz /var/cache/pacman/pkg

#install the packages
sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/xorg-server-1.6.3.901-1-i686.pkg.tar.gz

sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/xf86-video-vesa-2.2.0-1-i686.pkg.tar.gz

Again, this is just a suggestion.  It may be tailored to suit your tastes and package preferences.  Also, this script assumes that you use sudo.  Feel free to comment the script as necessary to work for you.  If you find this script useful, please post.  It is a collaborative effort, so feel free to keep it updated as necessary, since url's can change.

Re: [Solved] -- Xorg server 1.7 + drivers nvidia

Does this script contain only the packages that are under the group xorg ( if I would do it through pacman ) ? Also, which ones I might not need ?

Rob - thanks for the script - saves loads of time.  Just a word about running it.  Just to let you know, I had to uninstall about seven more files before the install part of the script would run.  These were files like: xf86-input-mutouch, vmmouse and half-a-dozen more.  There were version and dependency conflicts with all of them. 

After that the script went fine.  I am still using the nv driver though.  My last question is, I have an nvdia 5200 card which uses the 173xx series of drivers.  Do I now need to re-install this driver etc (following the wiki) before xorg will run OK?

It will not hurt to download all of them, so if  you do not know the script should still work fine. I think some people may not need synaptic for example, or may find that not all of these packages need downgraded to these particular versions to solve their particular problem.
As far as your first question,  I am not sure what you are asking exactly.  Do you mean if you were to downgrade them from copies you still have in /var/cache/pacman/pkg directory, could you avoid downloading them again? Certainly.  But I did not have the copies in my cache, so this script would have been necessary to download them in order to do the downgrade.  Also, you can mask the packages in /etc/pacman.conf by adding lines similar to the following under
[options] :

IgnorePkg=xf86-input-evdev
IgnorePkg=xf86-input-keyboard
IgnorePkg=xf86-input-mouse
IgnorePkg=xf86-video-nv
IgnorePkg=xf86-video-vesa
IgnorePkg=xorg-server-utils
IgnorePkg=xorg-server

and so on. . .

I would not suggest at this point adding the entire xorg group to this, but that is my personal opinion. It doesn't appear necessary at this point.

Ok, thanks - will give it a go smile Between, what if I don't have xorg installed ( fresh install ) ? Do I still need to use the same commands/route ?

No, the beauty of this is, you can just edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and put nvidia back in place of nv as the driver in the Device section and you should be back up and running.
For example:

Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Videocard0"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
    BoardName      "GeForce FX 5200"

Good Luck.

This script just downloads these particular versions and copies them to your pacman cache directory and then installs them, so I would assume that it will allow you to install these package versions of X on a clean install but there may be other files you need.  So you could go about it various ways, try the script first, see what else you need to get
X up and running, or block the packages, try to install X and then run the script to get the downgraded versions of these packages.  I do not know what will work best for you but I am sure you will figure it out. wink  It was written to help those that already have X up and running that found themselves unknowingly with a broken X installation downgrade to the right xorg packages so they can continue to use their Nvidia legacy drivers.  Other scenarios I cannot say. Good Luck.

I'm in the same boat, just thought it might be easier and cleaner to reinstall everything ( which takes no more than 15 minutes ). Anyway, thanks for the script - appreciate your help smile

It doesn't seem to work .. It said replacing packages with -U is not supported yet. What the hell does that mean ? hmm

Post your complete output if you want more specific help, but usually it means that you need to uninstall something first using pacman -Rd <packagename>.

There's no way I could do that at the moment ( pure CLI interface ). First it said that it can't move the files it just finished downloading .. ok, whatever, I took and moved them manually. After running the upgrade ( -U ? ) command, it said exactly what I posted in my previous post ( there were no other errors or notes ).

Post your complete output if you want more specific help, but usually it means that you need to uninstall something first using pacman -Rd <packagename>.

There's no way I could do that at the moment ( pure CLI interface ). First it said that it can't move the files it just finished downloading .. ok, whatever, I took and moved them manually. After running the upgrade ( -U ? ) command, it said exactly what I posted in my previous post ( there were no other errors or notes ).

well you would have to use sudo or move them as root first of all, which you said u did manually -- great.
You can try uninstalling the packages in the script by name first
and then installing the older versions. You cannot upgrade using pacman -U, you will have to uninstall the installed versions first, and then install the downgrade packages you just downloaded.
Good Luck.

Though I have a nvidia geforce gt130 M I also had to deal with this issue. Your repo has simplified the downgrade to a previous Xorg version. Thanks smile

Re: [Solved] -- Xorg server 1.7 + drivers nvidia

An driver update is available in extra repo, for both 96xx and 173xx. From nvidia announcements, they should be compatible with latest Xorg.

Kudos to arch devs for their reactivity.

*edit*
I confirm everything's back to normal with geforce fx5200 and updated nvidia-173xx.

Re: [Solved] -- Xorg server 1.7 + drivers nvidia

Ooo-weeee!

I like the nouveau driver and it's xrandr support, but it's just not there yet. No powersaving, and I was having a lot of difficulty getting everything to work right in general (with and without kms)

Agreed, that's a very fast update smile

173xx seems to be working fine again; geforce 6800

Thanks for the information. Yes, it is working.  Just the news I have been waiting for!  I expected to wait a couple of months at least.  Awesome.
