so; after an update I can no longer start X…
i’ve tried googling from my phone with no answers. if anyone knows wtf is up with this; i sure could use some helpDecember 2, 2015 at 1:33 am #75448
Ah… I knew there was something fucky with your nvidia driver…
Did you use this PPA? https://launchpad.net/~graphics-drivers … ubuntu/ppa
What version of the Nvidia driver where you upgrading to?
Can you boot in a shell?
Do you have internet access with Wifi from that shell?
If not, do you have an ethernet cable?
I find it strange that the Nvidia driver complain about an incompatible ABI. You weren’t upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04, I hope. That’s usually what happens when upgrading to a development version of Ubuntu while using proprietary drivers.
Or else you were downgrading to some really old drivers?December 2, 2015 at 1:38 am #75449
yes; i’m using that ppa. the last update was x server itself; i haven’t touched the nvidia drivers
i can get to the console via alt+f1-f6 and i do have internet via wifiDecember 2, 2015 at 1:42 am #75450Code:Failed to load /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/xorg/extra-modules/libglx.so: libnvidia-tls.so.319.23
319.23? Dude, WTF?Code:sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get remove nvidia-319
sudo apt-get install nvidia-358
sudo rebootDecember 2, 2015 at 1:44 am #75451
Also had the Xserver update, tried rebooting to see if it caused any problem. All seems fine with the nvidia-358 driver.December 2, 2015 at 7:20 am #75453
no idea where that 319 came from, only have 355 installed. trying out 358…December 2, 2015 at 8:32 am #75454
OK, so I got 358 installed, but still no go. I do see (module requirement mismatch, 0) in the error log… Fuck, Ubuntu updated my kernel… 4.2.0-19December 2, 2015 at 10:43 am #75457
Still no luck, thinking about trying the .run from nvidiaDecember 2, 2015 at 12:40 pm #75458

apt-cache search bumblebee
bumblebee – NVIDIA Optimus support for Linux
bumblebee-dbg – NVIDIA Optimus support – debugging symbols
bumblebee-nvidia – NVIDIA Optimus support using the proprietary NVIDIA driver
primus – client-side GPU offloading for NVIDIA OptimusCode:Nvidia Optimus is a computer GPU switching technology created by Nvidia which, depending on the resource load generated by client software applications, will seamlessly switch between two graphics adapters within a computer system in order to provide either maximum performance or minimum power draw from the system’s graphics rendering hardware.
A typical platform includes both a lower-performance integrated unit by Intel and a high-performance one by Nvidia. Optimus saves battery life by automatically switching the power of the discrete graphics processing unit (GPU) off when it is not needed and switching it on when needed again. The technology mainly targets mobile PCs such as notebooks.[a] When the GPU power is off, the driver redirects graphics commands to the integrated graphics chip. The switching is designed to be completely seamless and to happen “behind the scenes”.December 2, 2015 at 2:33 pm #75462
Oooh, well that explains a lot!December 2, 2015 at 3:33 pm #75464Venn StoneKeymaster__eMpTy__ wrote:linuxgnuru wrote:*pulls out hair*

It’s not… sane.
