Any suggestions as to what to do next?You probably need xserver-xorg-video-nvidia (as in addition to the NVIDIA kernel driver, you need the NVIDIA Xorg driver). But when I was using the NVIDIA drivers in the past, I installed nvidia-glx, which depends on xserver-xorg-video-nvidia and other useful packages.Thanks Vincent, let me try that. I usually use the closed source NVidia driver from upstream, this is the first time that I have tried building the driver myself.
That was it. I installed nvidia-glx and that pulled in xserver-xorg-video-nvidia and now X comes up. Thanks again.
