Huh! That did something!

I (apparently) booted into the 3.10-3-686-pae kernel (twice). kde is up and running again and this time with correct resolution and dual head available running the Nouveau driver. The Welcome window reports that the 3.10-3-686-pae kernel is not intalled :? :shock: :roll: Clicking in Start DDM it shows that message again:

"You do not have the latest kernel installed. Use the Update manger to update your system"

And doesn't launch.

I'm still getting the nvidia-kernel-dkms issue. The update manager reports a broken package (that one, of course). But I can live like this for a while. The Nouveau driver never behaved so well with this GPU and never stores the Display and Monitor settings when rebooting, plus, Kwin crashes often. I need the Nvidia 304. Waiting for a real solution, but as I've said, I can live with it for a while.

Any other suggestions to try?

Thanks!

what if you boot into the 486 kernel and then purge nvidia-kernel-dkms:

Code: Select all

apt-get purge nvidia-kernel-dkms
If that works, check if you have no nvidia packages left:

Code: Select all

apt search nvidia | grep ^i
should return nothing.

To the guys with broken systems, if you have a separate home partition, then you can quite easily just install Solydk again. I did this then just used the command line to upgrade,this after reading the help posted by Schoelje. I then updated the nvidia drivers through the DDM. All went smoothly without any heart attack moments.
Still I think there are conflicts with nvidia and Xorg stuff with the latest UP, causing headaches for some??
The Solydxk team are doing a good job helping everyone as much as they can,Its not easy helping remotely, as they cant directly look in and sort our systems, so Kudos to them 8-)

if it fails try the atomic bomb

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq nvidia-kernel-dkms
or even more drastic: manual removal

Code: Select all

cd /var/lib/dpkg/info

Code: Select all

sudo rm nvidia-kernel-dkms.*
very careful with the syntax of the last command nvidia-kernel-dkms(dot)*
and after

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq nvidia-kernel-dkms
again

good luck with those commands

Purged everything Nvidia again. Apparently no hints of packages and supposedly the Nouveau driver installed.

Going to reboot now. Crossing my fingers and everything else, and family and neighbors fingers too....

Well, at least the nvidia-kernel-dkms is gone. Now the Welcome app reports the last 686 kernel as installed and DDM launches and shows the four drivers available. (Nvidia 304 included).

Enough for today. I'll try to install the 304 tomorrow.

Thanks. So a Geforce and you are on Xfce. I wonder if this issue related to KDE and the Nvidia drivers only.... or did the Xfce users went into problems too? I read somewhere that this is Plymouth related, but I don't have Plymouth installed. I always prefer to see the text to track problems and errors in the booting sequence.
