I seem to be stuck at the moment. On January 18, my system performed a kernel update. Since that time I have not been able to get back into X.
I am running:
PRETTY_NAME=“openSUSE 13.1 (Bottle) (x86_64)”
Linux hub 3.11.6-4-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Oct 30 18:04:56 UTC 2013 (e6d4a27) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I have the following card installed: (lspci -k)
05:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK106 [GeForce GTX 650 Ti] (rev a1)
Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. Device 2806
Kernel driver in use: nvidia

The /var/log/Xorg.0.log file gives the following:

So far I have attempted several things to resolve this issue.
I have completely removed all NVIDIA drivers and attempted to revert to the nouveau drivers. The same error message is observed in the log.
I checked the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf. This file is basically empty. (I assume this is correct to allow auto configuration but am not sure.)
I have also attempted to blacklist the glx and nvidia drivers from loading
I have checked for and did not find an errant Xorg.conf file on my system.
I have hand verified that the removal of the nvidia drivers was successful. I did not find any modules left from the previous installation. I did however find mention of nvidia modules in the kernel source directories. (for example: /lib/modules/3.11.6-4-desktop/kernel/drivers/video)
I even tried to back-rev the proprietary NVIDIA driver back to the 304.117 version to no avail.
I currently have the 304.117 version of the NVIDIA driver installed (that is why you see the nvidia module in the lspci -k output above) and am still having the same conflict according to the Xorg.0.log file.
Can anyone provide some guidance with this issue? I am not sure where I am going wrong.
Thanks in advance
