I'm using the x86_64 stable version.

I upgraded from the previous build. In the next reboot the system could not start the windows x.

After a clean install, the desktop environment was not centered in the screen witch I guess was because other graphic driver than Nvidia was in use.
I tried upkg_install for nvidia 190.32. After that I can see that at least, some nvidia files are in the system, but it seems that the driver is not being in use, as the problem still remains.

Any comment will be appreciated.

I had a similar problem

Then I found out that because of licenses, paldo have to drop the out-of-box support for the proprietary driver of nvidia... there for if the package is not selected by upkg on an upgrade the meta package will not pull it and instead it will be removed

If you got it installed with upkg-install nvidia-glx then you have selected it and won't have this problem again

Now since it got uninstalled xorg.conf was set to nv driver instead of nvidia so

Edit xorg.conf and change Driver "nv" line to Driver "nvidia"

Then you can do init 3 and init 5 to restart the X system

Zerobug,

I'm glad it worked... but what is your video card... because until now I only know that my card doesn't work with nv driver which is a Nvidia 8400M GS video card

If you could print here the lspci so the devels can later add to the system configurations so that people with these cards that are incompatible with nv driver can get there xorg to be using vesa instead of nv in the lack of nvidia driver

For the devels to see here is my lspci:

Sure. Here it goes.

I can see that both our systems are quite similar. Apart from yours being a mobile one, we have both a 965 chipset, and the vga cards are both G70. Certainly it would be nice if the developers could add these specs to the configuration, as I guess they are quite popular.

Sorry I did not see your request yesterday. After knowing how to fix the video driver, I went for a new clean install, because I had already been messing with the system, while trying myself to find a fix.
