    Question Boot in init 5 without gui

    Hello

    i upgraded my xorg and kernel in order to compile last driver from nvidia, but had an error with /usr/src/linux not ok.
    I then went there and did make oldconfig and make prepare.
    I can now compile the driver bu i can't boot but in init 5 with command line interface (cli) .

    I have last nvidia driver , xorg.conf using nvidia driver.

    startx gives me error messages , here's the error message :
    : cannot move old log file /var/log/Xorg.0.log to /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old
    xinit no such file or dir errno 2 : unable to connect to X server
    xinit no such process errno3 ; server error

    Renaming Xorg.0.log.old is not helping.

    Can you help me with this ?
    thanks

    How exactly did You upgrade xorg and kernel ? Could You specify the exact method You used ?

    yes,
    i looked for xorg and kernel in opensuse download site, and used the appropriate repositories that i added in yast, which i used to upgrade, this was not enough as some packages were missing : sources, syms, i don't remember exactly which ones.
    I added them from init3.

    I then upgraded and my 256.63 driver was claiming for /usr/src/linux not being ok. Which is why i did as mentionned above in #1 message.

    Can You Try reverting xorg to the original OSS version ?

    Could You post here your current repo list ?

    The version in the oss repo.

    There are many repositories containing xorg You need to be more specific. Also the packages which You installed and don't remember what they were exactly might make a difference. In short there are to many questions to help You out.

    @manchette_fr: Please post the output of:

    Code:
    > ls -l /usr/bin/Xorg
    -rws--x--x 1 root root 1999580 19. Aug 17:36 /usr/bin/Xorg
    Make sure that it has the setuid bit set, like in my example. If it is not set then this was the problem.

    hi

    ok i reinstalled from scratch , but i still have a (different ) problem ...

    pc is ok with nv dirver but i'm a a bit stuborn and would like to understand what's happening , i have a warning while building nvidia driver :
    WARNING: Symbol version dump /usr/src/linux-2.6.29/Module.symvers is missing; module will have no dependencies and modversions.


    a link explaining my warning : Preparing Linux kernel sources for compiling "external" out of tree kernel modules | Debian Ubuntu Linux Solutions Blog

    Do you think this link is a good tip to follow ? it's talking of headers so i'm not sure anymore what i shall do...

    Also it says cd /usr/src/my-graphics-kernel-module-source/
    something i don't get is where are these ? (my-graphics-kernel-module-source/)
    is it in /usr/src/linux-2.6.34.7-0.7/drivers> ?
    i can't see anything looking like it there, what is this looking like ?

    thanks



    btw :
    ls -l /usr/bin/Xorg
    -rws--x--x 1 root root 1999580 aot 19 17:36 /usr/bin/Xorg
