i need a few bits more of info

Code: Select all

inxi -Gxx

Code: Select all

apt policy libxvmcnvidia1 libxvmcnvidia1:i386
this might sound basic -sorry about that- but it's SolydXK's grub controlling the MBR? you should boot into the distro -if other- that has grub in the MBR and run

Code: Select all

sudo update-grub
run it anyway if is SolydXK controlling the MBR.

also

Code: Select all

apt policy nvidia-kernel-dkms nvidia-kernel-common nvidia-installer-cleanup nvidia-driver

Aside of the Nvidia mess, any way to setup the Nouveau driver to work properly? It works all wrong now. I guess that the nvidia leftover bit is screweing it all up. Isn't it?

What does nvidia-detect return?
It should return the driver that you need for your card.

i was looking into that as well. according to http://packages.debian.org/jessie/nvidi ... ernel-dkms your card [NVIDIA G71GL [Quadro FX 1500] should be now supported by the 304-legacy driver and not the 319.xx

I know. I've been using the 304 for quite a while in diferent distros and it was this way this morning before the upgrade. Don't know why the 319 got there.

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:

 nvidia-kernel-dkms : Depends: nvidia-kernel-common (>= 20110213) but it is not going to be installed

                      Recommends: nvidia-driver (>= 319.60) but it is not going to be installed

Ok. Now I can boot in the 3.10-3-686-pae kernel again and the DDM launches... pheeewww!!!

It's the VESA driver the one running not the Nouveau!!! The Vesa never worked good here. The four drivers are now listed including the Nvidia 304. I'll try to switch to the Nouveau before trying anything else. That one worked at least decently for single head and got the proper monitor resolution, besides the frequent Kwin crashes. Cross my fingers.

Hell, a step back. Now kdm is gone again. It boots in tty1 whatever the kernel.

I'm typing on KXstudio now... How refreshing is having the right screen resolution again!!!!!

What can I do to reinstall the crap Vesa driver again? From the tty1? At least I'll get the GUI apps running.

@Karl and @ChipButty
I'm really sorry to hear that. It seems there was a lot against you.
We've done all we could to prevent this from happening, but unfortunately it did.
Its' OK Schoelje I appreciate the work you and the guys do and this machine isn't something I have to depend on (plus I got it dual-booted with Crunchbang) so not a big issue for me. I think this episode probably backs up the argument for longer testing periods between UP's though. Hehe! I really don't have an idea of what goes into all of the testing for updates or how much time it takes but I would guess when lots of problems come like the last couple of days it adds up lot of pressure for you and personally I'd rather let this slide and do the XFCE install instead. But for sure longer periods between UP's is probably a very good idea :D

Cheers!

Hi to every one,
Ran the updates of SolydX through UM and everything is working perfectly. FF is at v25 and thunderbird at v24
However UM icon tells that the system is up-to-date but also shows UP 2013.10.06 as last used.

I'm typing on KXstudio now... How refreshing is having the right screen resolution again!!!!!

What can I do to reinstall the crap Vesa driver again? From the tty1? At least I'll get the GUI apps running.

Code: Select all

rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
rm /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia*
rm /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf
apt-get purge nvidia*
