gdm crashes but ok after restart


hey there ppl

i started messing with my pc, and what happens to ppl like me when they start messing with their pc? yeah..

anyway, i have
gdm-2.0.8.16-1
xorg-6.8.2-37
NVIDIA-1.0-7667

problem is that after boot finished, X starts, GDM starts then crashes and falls back to another login maganer. if i type gdm-restart then GDM starts without any complaint

gdm errorlog shows:
Symbol __glXgetActiveScreen from module /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libdri.a is unresolved!


I disabled early login, didn't help tho. Yesterday I was having problems with X itself, but it seems that X is ok now. I do not really get why GDM is able to start if asked manually.
I tried to fall back to NVIDIA-7664 which had worked fine. Didn't matter.

Yesterday I was trying to install beagle so I downloaded a kernel for it. That's when the problems started, but the kernel is uninstalled by now.

Ideas, fellas?


ps.: also done fixfiles relabel on specific directories

Enter your error message on google, there are a lot of results that show up and I am sure you will find a solution somewhere in those results.

yeah well, as I already told you I googled the net. Most of them are having problems with bunch of other things, mainly X and graphics card. In my case it seems as if gdm started earlier, because after its crash both gdm-restart or ctrl-backspace solves the problem.

thx anyway
