    Re: Gtk-CRITICAL fails, login loop

    I found it in Synaptic Package Manager. It says I'm already using Nouveau, though. And it does see my driver, although today I'm stuck with this Gallium thing again.

    Applying Nvidia-173, as that...

    Huh. Okay, it looks like the GeForce 8300 is is still there, if I understand this, which I may not. I don't actually have the additional drivers utility, or it's not where it used to be. It's not in...

    Re: Gtk-CRITICAL fails, login loop

    a) I don't, actually, I just know my system can't see it. I don't know how to tell, otherwise.
    b) Apparently, just Vesa. I don't really understand.

    Well, I still have the GtK errors, but apparently the ACTUAL problem is that my graphics card is dead. I'm not sure if I should mark this "solved" or not.

    Re: Gtk-CRITICAL fails, login loop

    Neither of those returned anything, but I did do another nvidia-purge last night and there were somehow some remnants of 319 in there even though I'd purged before.

    OK, thanks. Say, I just noticed during boot up that "Nvidia persistence daemon" failed. Do I need to do something about that?

    Re: Gtk-CRITICAL fails, login loop

    So, it looks like I now have something called Vesa instead of Nvidia, and it does not have an option for the correct resolution for my screen, which I believe is 1440x900. Apparently Vesa doesn't...

    Re: Gtk-CRITICAL fails, login loop

    OK, I did a bunch of sh*t and now I can at least open a terminal in Guest and then log in as myself. I went in there and re-installed nvidia-current. I thought then maybe I could get to a GUI, but...

    Re: Gtk-CRITICAL fails, login loop

    No, I was not able to open a terminal on the Guest desktop. The only thing I can access is the root through grub. Whatever I do has to be done that way.



    Can you break that down for me more...

    Hmm. I removed nvidia, rebooted, got a login loop, which I guess is progress? Last time I had that, I fixed it by changing "normal" to "nomodeset" on the grub screen, but it was already at nomodeset....

    Nautilus returns:

    (nautilus:2366): GtK-WARNING **: cannot open display

    Which is also what I get when I try anything with gedit. I did reinstall gedit. Didn't help.

    There have been two updates to the kernel since I started. The first one got rid of those "unable to fetch" errors but still no gui. Will try everything again today. I'm doing all this in root:
