Lots of problems involving X [solved]

Hi there. Pretty much just installed archlinux but i'm fairly familiar with most of linux  big_smile

First of all i thought i'd try kdm. This worked really well but i noticed that just before i would get to kdm i would get some errors on the terminal:

INIT: cannot execute "/usr/X11R6/bin/kdm"

But kdm would work fine so i thought i'd just get it sorted later.

Next i tried to install my nvidia drivers (groan). I pretty much got it all sorted and once i started x (after putting in Load "glx", taking out the DRI bumph and changing nv to nvidia) i was presented with the splash screen which we all love to hate.

Unfortunately the desktop kinda loaded ontop of this. I took this splash off and instead i just get a black screen with some ugly bar at the bottom and no mouse use (although the keyboard works a bit). Its completely un usable.

Now onto the errors.

dmesg | grep nvidia
nvidia: module license 'NVIDIA' taints kernel.
NVRM: loading NVIDIA Linux x86 NVIDIA Kernel Module
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log
(EE) Failed to load module "GLcore" (module does not exist, 0)

But that last one could be due to my using nv just now. I tried to sort the first error with:

ln -s /opt/kde/bin/kdm /usr/X11R6/bin/kdm

and now i get the error:

INIT: Id "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

any pointers guys? i'm really stuck - cheers.  smile

Re: Lots of problems involving X [solved]

INIT: Id "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

this means that X cannot be started by your graphical daemon. First simply run X. When it works then switch to init 5

Re: Lots of problems involving X [solved]

Changed my default runlelvel to 3 in my /etc/inittab and that did the trick as far as that error is concerned.

Still the same behaviour as beofre with the nvidia drive though - anyone?

Cheers  :?  smile

Re: Lots of problems involving X [solved]

I cannot help with the xorg problems as I have an ATI graphics card.  One thing I noticed in your original post is an incorrect path to kdm.  The line in  /etc/inittab should read:

x:5:respawn:/opt/kde/bin/kdm -nodaemon

Hope this helps.

Sometimes problems are connected with your video card model. Search the forums for more info.

Ignore it. It's just not opensourced.

But that last one could be due to my using nv just now.

When you install nvidia driver it adds it's own glx libs to X subdir. You can try to reinstall xorg first to clean this up (for nv driver).

Cheers for that - got that fixed with the symbolic link but i've changed the inittab now.

Re: Lots of problems involving X [solved]

Yeah i read the kdm wiki. I've done a search on the forums for my card (Nvidia GeForce4 MX 440) but the results are rather sparse. 2 infact, and both of them are log files which list all the models nv can be used for. I'll vary my search though  wink

I also can't rule out that ive done something stupid. I'll go over the configurations again.

Re: Lots of problems involving X [solved]

I don't know if this can help you but I found this from the Nvidia driver readme /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/

You should also remove the following lines:
         
         Load "dri"
         Load "GLcore"


So I guess you need to remove the GLcore and dri modules from your xorg.conf file. Although you said that you already change nv to nvidia but your xorg.conf file said otherwise. Try changing that thing and see if it help.

Re: Lots of problems involving X [solved]

Yeah i'd commented and uncommented them to the same result i'm afraid.

And the nv is there instead of nvidia so i can use x for the time being. When i am testing it working or not i change it.

Cheers!  smile

Re: Lots of problems involving X [solved]

those warnings are from the ddc module - if you know your monitor, you should specify your modes and remove ddc

Re: Lots of problems involving X [solved]

Well i've now turned the ddc module off but when i load X i still get the error messages. I've now actually deleted all the

lines from my xorg.conf because man xorg.conf said i didn't need them and i thought they might be confusing things.

Anyway, i'm going to be annyoing and post a large part of my Xorg.0.log and if someone could tell me whats going on i'd really appreciate it.
