Total fail after update

Yesterday I rebooted my combined master backed/frontend machine (Mythbuntu
with JYA's repositories) after a kernel update and had a total fail with X.
While the logon manager will come up, when I log on I simply cannot get an X
session, I can't even get it to run in failsafe low graphics mode. I have a
GT220 card, driver is 260.19.06, kernel is now at 2.6.35-25.

Every time I try to logon I get this in dmesg:

mtrr: no MTRR for cf000000,e00000 found

I have also been seeing this:

NVRM: os_raise_smp_barrier(), invalid context

From various forums I see this appears to be an on-going issue with nVidia
drivers and the GT220/240/etc cards. I've tried booting with earlier kernels
with no success. Has anyone else ssen this? Anyone got a suggestion for a fix?

Cheers.

I don't know if this is a solution, but there's no reason not to
download the latest nvidia drivers directly from
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

except that you might not want to step outside your distros packaging system...

Use sarvant-xorg-updates to get upstream packages for nvidia closer to release.

OK, I have blitzed all existing drivers and installed 260.19.36 from the
NVidia site. Now it gets weird: I still cannot start an X session as the usual
default (and only) user, however, I created a new user account and I can start
an X session with that one.

I am not very knowledgable on X, but checked a few things and found that my
user accounts .Xauthority file was owned by root. Have changed ownership back
to the user account but still no luck. (Picked that up thanks to a warning
message when using ssh to remotly log in)

Given that for whatever reason the .Xauthority file ownership changed, can
anyone suggest what else I should check?

Thanks all,
James.

What do the X logs say?

This is likely to have happened by starting X with sudo

`find /home/you -uid 0`

will help you discover any other files that may have been effected by
this.

I'm using the nvidia site and that's their current stable release for
the GT220 card.

I've never heard of sarvant-xorg-updates. Nor has google.

Re: Total fail after update [In reply to]

This PPA will give you the latest stable drivers if that's what you
want.
It's up to 270.18 for Nvidia.

Re: Total fail after update [In reply to]

Given that X now works for another user, it probably means that your
Desktop session is corrupted. (Ie: KDE/Gnome/??? settings)

Check in ~/.xsession-errors

I now find that while I can log in with the new user account, I do not have
vdpau. Re-ran install of the video drivers and got this in the output:

update-alternatives: using /usr/lib/nvidia-current/ld.so.conf to provide
/etc/ld.so.conf.d/GL.conf (gl_conf) in auto mode.
update-alternatives: warning: skip creation of
/usr/lib32/vdpau/libvdpau_nvidia.so.1 because associated file
/usr/lib32/nvidia-current/vdpau/libvdpau_nvidia.so.1 (of link group gl_conf)
doesn't exist.
update-alternatives: warning: skip creation of /usr/lib32/libvdpau_nvidia.so
because associated file /usr/lib32/nvidia-current/vdpau/libvdpau_nvidia.so (of
link group gl_conf) doesn't exist.

I chcked both /usr/lib32/vdpau and /usr/lib32/nvidia-current and they are
empty.

That's quite possibly the (or at least a) problem. Change the ownership
of your files with chown

Woohoo! It was the .ICEauthority file. Now to get vdpau sorted out...

Hads, re. your suggestion of running X as root causing the problem, the only
thing I can think of is that I ran an xterm remotely through ssh using sudo
xterm the other day - do you think that would of caused it?
