x.org refuses to start

Hello,
I just installed Arch Linux for the first time today. Everything went well until I tried to start the xorg server using

startx

. X appears to have initialized all of the built in extensions correctly, but right after the "Loading extension GLX" log, it complained about not finding the screen. I checked the Xorg log (/var/log/Xorg.0.log), and I saw this:

I'm wondering: is Xorg complaining about graphics cards? I already have the right NVIDIA driver installed (the official proprietary one). How can I fix this without just installing vesa or the Intel module?

My computer has an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670, and an Intel motherboard-integrated card also. I want to use the NVIDIA one.

Thanks so much!

Re: x.org refuses to start

abrambleninja,
                      Have you disabled the Intel motherboard-integrated card in BIOS?

You should also have, in BIOS, something like "Primary Display Adaptor"? Check that this is pointed at your Nvidia card (normally PCI-E).

I don't think I have. How would I go about doing that?

If I run

lspci | grep VGA

I get:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF114M [GeForce GTX 670M] (rev a1)

which I understand to mean that they're both enabled.

Re: x.org refuses to start

How to do it depends on your BIOS. You have to boot into it and see or read the documentation for your motherboard/computer.

Re: x.org refuses to start

Or you could put

Driver "nvidia"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"

in an xorg.conf "Device" section.

Where is xorg.conf located? I've searched around and people say it's at /etc/X11/xorg.conf, but my X11 directory only contains other directories. Do I create one?

I tried running 'find / | grep xorg.conf' but only directories came up.

Sorry, really new to Arch here.

Thanks!

OK, I did that, and now xorg is complaining about 'No devices detected.' in addition to 'No screens found.'

Re: x.org refuses to start

Have you tried following the Arch wiki? If so, did you try the automatic or minimal configurations at all?

I followed the Arch Wiki's guide almost word-for-word. I used

nvidia-xconfig

to generate my /etc/X11/xorg.conf (which is what I assume you meant by configurations). I also tried

Xorg :0 -configure

(and then started X with

X -config /root/xorg.conf.new

which resulted in the same error.

I've also read through Troubleshooting (on the Arch Wiki) and I've looked at the X wiki.

EDIT: I have now also tried

Xorg -configure 

and, after switching out the config file with the new one, I ended up with the same error.

Re: x.org refuses to start

Have you tried assigning a Screen in the Device section as they do in the wiki example?

Note that I know nothing about this - I am just comparing your config with the example. So if you think you know better, you are almost certainly correct wink.

EDIT: Hopefully somebody who uses nvidia (or at least knows how to configure X) will happen by now your config and stuff is up. I'm pretty useless at this point (most points).

Re: x.org refuses to start

I'm starting to get really frustrated. I've tried #xorg on freenode, and they said it was an nvidia problem. Someone on #nvidia was helping me (I installed the official driver from their website rather than pacman), but then their Internet died and couldn't help me anymore. The #nvidia channel is next to dead. Does anyone know of a better place to get help?

Also, I'm kinda bumping this post because maybe someone new will see it.

Thanks everyone for your help so far!

Re: x.org refuses to start

No usable configuration could mean that you haven't listed modes in the "Display" subsection. Right under "Depth 24", try writing "Modes 1600x1200" or whatever you want to use. Are you loading the nvidia kernel module first? Maybe you can change the HorizSync and VertRefresh values in the "Monitor" section or just remove that section altogether.

Re: x.org refuses to start

I have the same problem, just installed Arch for the first time, right now. I've generated a Xorg config file, just as abrambleninja (OP), same command and everything, then made the

BusID "PCI:1:0:0"

I put that line just under the Driver line, which already said "nvidia" (My GPU/screencard (whatever) is nvidia, I followed the Arch Linux Beginner Guide and installed Arch successfully, first error that I can't handle myself is now).

When I try to start Xorg with "startx", I get the same error, refering to the Xorg.0.log file. I check that file, and it still says

(...)Fatal server error: 
(....) no screens found(EE) (.....)

Above that it says:

Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

Does anyone know, how I give my screen a usable configuration? It's an Alienware m11" (laptop).

Also, should I post the .log file and .conf file? I'm on another laptop right now, googling my way through everything, I tried using the elinks in another tty, but I didn't like that at all. Is there some easier way to share the log? Should I transfer the .log and .conf etc. to an USB pen, then open here? Just wondering how you do it tongue

You probably have optimus, which makes this a totally different problem than the one OP had. Check out the bumblebee wiki page.

Re: x.org refuses to start

I'm now using the nouveau driver, and now X can't detect any devices, even after I put the bus ID from

lspci | grep -i vga

in the config. I'll post my config and logs in a few hours or so, I have to run right now.

I set up an SSH server on my Arch machine using OpenSSH:

pacman -S openssh
systemctl enable sshd.service
systemctl start sshd

then I logged in from a different laptop and copy pasted the cat output.

EDIT: I have Optimus also, just like Rohdehoved. I installed Bumblebee, but when I run

optirun glxgears -info

it gives an error. I'll post it in a bit.

Re: x.org refuses to start

wgetpaste is the easiest way to post stuff.

For nouveau, try not using a config file for it at all - it should just work stuff out for itself automatically. The main thing if I remember correctly is to either not have conflicting drivers installed or to blacklist them as they prevent nouveau loading. That said, things may have changed since then so may no longer be a problem.

I don't have any conflicting drivers. I removed everything that said nvidia. I tried moving my xorg.conf so X would start without it, but X couldn't find any drivers:

Earlier, I said my Bumblebee wasn't working. I'm not sure what I did, but I fixed it. Running

optirun glxgears -info

produces a "Failed to find screens" error, because X isn't running.

Re: x.org refuses to start

So are you trying to use just the nvidia card (in which case you need to disable the intel one in bios probably as mentioned above) or to configure it with bumblebee? If the latter, don't you need the intel driver installed as well? I don't have optimus or know much about it but I thought that was the point of bumblebee...

I'm not too sure, that's the problem. On the Arch Wiki page for Bumblebee (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bu … .2FNouveau), it doesn't say to get the Intel driver, but it does if you are looking to use the NVIDIA driver rather than nouveau. I looked through my BIOS settings, and there was nothing relevant to disabling the motherboard card. I thought Bumblebee could be configured to just use the NVIDIA card, which is what I was trying to do. Anyways, I just got the Intel drivers, and still no change in anything.

Re: x.org refuses to start

That seems odd to me as far as I know the point of bumblebee is to use both cards and you must then need the drivers for both. Scroll up the page you linked to and read the description: the point of bumblebee is to use both cards, disabling the nvidia card when appropriate. So if you just want to use that card, you don't want or need bumblebee. In that case, you just need to figure out how to disable the intel card.

EDIT: Note that you can use bumblebee to disable the *nvidia* card. Perhaps that is what you were thinking of?

Well, both cards would be okay to save power, that's what it did on windows. Anyways, as I said in my last post, I got the Intel driver also, and no change in anything.

thanks for your help so far though!
