Can't log into Desktop: Debian Squeeze


Using Debian Squeeze
Using KDE

I can't load my Desktop. I type in my password and press Enter. The login screen goes away like the Desktop is loading and then it stops, and comes back to the login screen. I don't know what happened; it was working. I tried to configure
Code:
Xorg: Xorg -configure
, and this is what I got:
Quote:
(EE) Failed to load /user/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.so
(EE) Failed to load module nvidia (loader failed, 7)

(EE) [drm] No DRICreatePCIBusID symbol

Configuration failed

Do you have the nvidia driver installed?

Kind regards

No I haven't been using the nvidia drivers. I'm using one of the legacy cards and Squeeze dropped support for it. I have been using the nv driver. That driver was working. How do I track down the problem for this?

So, the login manager (kdm) is working? If so, X is running okay.

On high school, we used to put the command "logout" into the X-login script of users who did not lock their session and left their terminal unattended. This resulted in exactly the same behaviour as you describe it here.

When you create a new user, can you login into the desktop with this new user?

configure does:
Quote:
When this option is specified, the Xorg server loads all video driver modules, probes for
available hardware, and writes out an initial xorg.conf(5) file based on what was detected.
This option currently has some problems on some platforms, but in most cases it is a good
way to bootstrap the configuration process. This option is only available when the server
is run as root (i.e, with real-uid 0).
So, X finds your old nvidia module, tries it, fails to load it as it does not match your new kernel, and finally fails completely.

You should remove this old module, but this has nothing to do with your logout-problem, I suppose.
