X won't start in Ubuntu 14.04. Bad Nvidia drivers? Bad Plymouth install?


I recently updated my kernel (with regular repos, no third party ones) and I also recently updated my nvidia drivers. I was also playing with Plymouth. Now gdm and lightdm won't start. Booting takes me to a VT.

I get this traceback when I attempt to run, $ service gdm start: http://paste.ubuntu.com/14001064/

dmesg here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/14001029/

Xorg.0.log here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/14001111/

I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 bit.

Actually all i had to do was add 'sudo' before 'service'.

=D

Cheers all the same, mate.

Where did you download the Nvidia drivers?

1. From Repos of Ubuntu?
2. Download page of Nvidia?
