Hi everyone,
I downloaded yesterday the testing x86_64 iso and got into an incompability issue

The nvidia driver 190.32 is not working with my Nvidia 8400M GS, it starts the livecd and keeps trying to start the Xserver for indefinite time but I can't

So is it an incompability issue or bug on the iso?... I think the second since nvidia site says that the beta 190.32 should work with 8400M GS

The proprietary NVIDIA driver is no longer included in the testing live CD for license and space reasons. However, the open source nv driver should still work, can you check /var/log/Xorg.0.log for errors? As soon as the nouveau driver is ready, it will be included in paldo. The proprietary NVIDIA driver is also still in the repository, just no longer installed by default. You can install it using
Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
upkg-install nvidia-glx

The nvidia driver doesn't work anymore:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
(II) LoadModule: "nvidia"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.so
(II) Module nvidia: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation"
compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.0
Module class: X.Org Video Driver
================ WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING ================
This server has a video driver ABI version of 6.0 that this
driver does not officially support. Please check
http://www.nvidia.com/ for driver updates or downgrade to an X
server with a supported driver ABI.
=================================================================
(EE) NVIDIA: Use the -ignoreABI option to override this check.
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(II) Unloading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.so
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (module requirement mismatch, 0)
(EE) No drivers available.


Right now I'm using VESA driver because NV driver crashes X.org.

It works adding these lines in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
Section "ServerFlags"
Option "IgnoreABI" "true"
EndSection


NOTE: If you already have a "ServerFlags" section in xorg.conf you should only add the "Option" line.

I've updated the driver to version 190.36, which should be compatible with xorg server 1.7.
