My computer had a major upgrade of distributions, and afterwards, the X server starts, but quits after a few seconds. There are no errors in
/var/log/Xorg.0.log. The few warnings are about missing font dirs.
The last lines of
Xorg.0.log, after unloading of libinput modules, are:
[ 27.544] (II) NVIDIA(GPU-0): Deleting GPU-0 [ 27.615] (II) Server terminated successfully (0). Closing log file.
xinitrc is in
#!/bin/sh # /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc # # global xinitrc file, used by all X sessions started by xinit (startx) # invoke global X session script . /etc/X11/Xsession
What's the best way to debug this and make X start again?
It's a computer with Ubuntu Gnome and a NVIDIA Quadro 2000 graphics card. The monitor is attached to the DVI output of the NVIDIA card, nothing else to the other ports.
NVIDIA module gets loaded, also nouveau, modesetting, fbdev and vesa. The last ones get unloaded afterwards, there is a validated Metamode for NVIDIA:
"DFP-0:nvidia-auto-select". Looks good to me, so why is it not starting the Xserver?
