Re: when will nvidai-glx and nvidia-kernel-source hit etch? {Scanned} {Scanned} {Scanned}



I wrote:
OK, I added some unstable lines to my sources.list and ran apt-get update:

deb http://cudlug.cudenver.edu/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
deb-src http://cudlug.cudenver.edu/debian/ testing main contrib non-free

deb http://cudlug.cudenver.edu/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://cudlug.cudenver.edu/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free

then:
apt-get -f install
    which installed:
ii linux-image-2.6.18-1-amd64 2.6.18-2 Linux 2.6.18 image on AMD64

apt-get -t unstable install nvidia-kernel-common
apt-get -t unstable install nvidia-kernel-source
apt-get -t unstable install module-assistant
m-a a-i nvidia
apt-get -t unstable install nvidia-glx

And somehow the 2.6.18 kernel headers got installed not sure when or how:
ii linux-kernel-headers 2.6.18-3 Linux Kernel Headers for development


I checked /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and it looked ok according to Andrew Schulman's instructions. I also added my user to group video in case that was needed also according to Schulman.

I am still gettting a gdm startup error:

Failed to start the X server....

GDM: Xserver not found: /usr/X11R6/bin/X :0....
Error: Command could not be executed!
Please install the Xserver or correct the GDM configuration and restart GDM

Found something screwy:

andy:/usr/X11R6# ls -l
total 28
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root    6 2006-10-16 08:24 bin -> ../bin
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 2006-10-16 08:33 include
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 2006-10-16 08:33 lib
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 2005-12-23 14:54 lib64

So /usr/X11R6/bin is rediricted to /usr/bin

Which package is setting up this symlink?

I think it is a very bad thing as that is how I ended up deleting my whole /usr/bin
contents when this etch upgrade started....all to get my hands on openoffice.

So where is /usr/X11R6/bin's files?

Look to be intermixed with /usr/bin's files now.....that sure seems screwy.

I sure don't recall creating that symlink:
andy:/var/log# history | grep ln
  510  history | grep ln

hgh.
