Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I`ve just intalled a fresh copy of Slackware 10.2 including all the X window system that comes with Slack 10.2 CD.
Then I installed seperate nvidia driver downloaded from nvidia.com.
Then I edited xorg.conf and changed "vesa" to "nvidia", also did necessary changes for my monitor.
Then I started x - everything went ok. GUI is running, everything is working fine till my first reboot.
So I rebooted 1st time and after reboot I can`t startx anymore.
"Fatal server error: Cought signal 11"
What does it means and why?
The only changes I`ve made in my first session in KDE is wallpaper change, thats all. In fact I`ve only started x, made sure everything is working and rebooted. So after reboot this error.
Originally posted by flebber when you installed the nvidia driver did you edit xorg.conf,
If no remove dri and glcore and change driver "nv" to "nvidia"
In my thread was said that I could run startx and GUI first time, but after reboot it is no more possible.
Yes, I edited xorg.conf and changed "vesa" to "nvidia", also did necessary changes for my monitor thats why I could run GUI first time,
but I don`t understand why I can`t run it after reboot?
I installed slackware a few days ago and i'm having the same problem. Worked fine for a while, and then all of a sudden couldn't startx anymore. I'll check the logs right now as suggested, but if anyone has a more definative solution to this problem please post.
Hmm...I had the same problem. Check your Xorg.0 log and tell me if it's because of the GLX driver...if so....
Here, the email I got from nvidia that solved the problem:
Thanks for the debug output. Can you try temporarily renaming /usr/lib/libnvidia-tls.so and /usr/lib/tsl/libnvidia-tls.so one at a time, and starting X after each? A possible theory is that one of these is causing your problem, so moving one at a time out of the way would help to determine if that is the case.
The solution they provided worked quite well.... But note: they said renaming, but I had to move into /storage/nv (a dir I created for it), then rerun ldconfig as root.
