NVIDIA - URGENT
Todays testing update, safe-upgrade and full-upgrade totally killed my X
which ran with NVIDIA driver. Even this posting I must send from my old
computer which is in a terrible state because I did nothing on it since
I use the new one. Without X, most work I do on my computer cannot be done.
Nouveau did not work after I bought my Fujitsu in January. Installing
libdrm-nouveau1a, and libdrm-nouveau1a-dbg and changing the Driver line
in Section "Device" of /etc/X11/xorg.conf with Vim from "NVIDIA" to
"nouveau" and after another reboot to "NOUVEAU" did not work either. The
Identifier line was "NVIDIA GeForce 9300 GE" and thus correct, the other
sections in xorg.conf were not printed but configured elsewhere, and xdm
and xfce4 had worked well all the time.
I rechanged the Driver line with Vim again back to "NVIDIA", rebootet
and dpkg-reconfigured whatever seemed necessary, And rebootet again.
Near the end of /var/log/Xorg.0.log the following lines showed up:
(II) Loading extension DRI2
(II) LoadModule: "nvidia"
(WW) Warning: couldn't open module "nvidia"
(II) Unloading module "nvidia"
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia"
These seem to be the important lines and are the same in Xorg.0.log and
in Xorg.0.log.old. The logs with "nouveau" are lost. I rebootet to often
and there is only one Xorg.0.log.old file. As far as I remember those
lines did not look notably different from the "nvidia" ones.
Is there something I can do, or is it necessary to install Wheezy anew?
In this case I hope it is enough to repartition / and /boot partitions
and leave the other ones as they are.
