"I have seen is that the packet xserver-xorg-core writes /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so, but the nvidia script puts instead a symlink to the compiled library, so each time that packet is updated I must delete the file libglx.so and recompile the nvidia library."

That doesn't seem to be what's happening to me. It looks like the libglx.so is a symlink to libglx.so.1.0.9629 so that should right, shouldn't it? I may try some earlier drivers to see if that makes a difference.

In case anyone is interested, apparently the 9629 driver from Nvidia has a glx bug with the ti-500 card. I went back to 9626 and it works just fine.

Etch nvidia (also testing and unstable used!!!)

The nvidia packages that I use are the Debian ones from Randall Donald. At some point, when I was using etch just like now, I got a higher kernel version (the sources are now 2.6.18). I recompiled the kernel and installed it, and expected to just do

m-a prepare
m-a a-i nvidia
apt-get install nvidia-glx

and be completely happy.

But not only does my nvidia card not work (which is bad enough), my complete X has stopped working! It says "no devices found" with both the nv and the nvidia driver!!!

Would anyone be able to help me with this? I can login as root (maybe that's the problem so would be able to provide detailed information!
Thanks very much!

old card

By the way: my card is an oldie: GeForce2 MX 400.

I tried installing nvidia-legacy and nvidia-glx-legacy, but that doesn't work.
In the "stable" branch, I get the message "what is nvidia-legacy?" and in the testing and unstable branches, I get "what is nvidia-glx-legacy?"

The strangest reply I could have predicted was "package not found"...

Any ide on how to get X back (either with nv or with nvidia)?

Thanks!

Fix of nVidia driver 195.36.31 after update

Hi!

I got problem similar to this thread after updating Ubuntu 10.04. X wouldn't start other than in low-graphics-mode.

The solution for me was to exit to console and reinstall the driver:

# sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-195.36.31-pkg1.run

I got several warnings during the reinstall, including "File '/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so' is not a symbolic link.", but it worked. I've got this problem the last two updates of Ubuntu 10.04, and reinstalling the nVidia driver worked both times.

Of course it would be better with a more permanent solution which would work for the upcoming updates, but this reinstall info might help someone.
