I started it using startx and it worked. when i rebooted my pc i saw X was giving an error about API mismatch between the nvidia module and the X module (one is newer than the other). after installing some dev packages the first warning was gone, but the problem still occurs, so i need to reinstall the driver on every boot!
i already tried installing the driver from apt-get, but it didnt work.
what can i do?
This sounds to be very similar if not the same problem I am currently having on my home computer.
Running Debian Etch, everything was sweet. But I wanted to try out some KVM goodness. so a dist-upgrade from testing to unstable was done. - that was easy, re-installed new nvidia drivers and all was great.
next day turned my PC on again and I got X errors saying that different versions were found between the X and the module.
I have tried re-installing the drivers since then again but alas no luck.
going to have a nother crack at it tonight. Not entirely sure what i'm going to do different at this stage though.
