6800xt "nvidia" driver problem in Fiesty Fawn
 
I'm pretty new so I am really confused at what is going on. I am trying to get my 6800xt to work with the correct driver and with "nvidia" in my xorg.conf. This is the error I am getting though:

(WW) NVIDIA(GPU-0): Failed to determine GPU name
(II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA GPU Unknown (Unknown) at PCI:1:0:0 (GPU-0)

In my xorg.conf if I use the "nv" driver, gnome will load, if I used the "nvidia" driver (after I installed and ran Envy), it would not load. I would get an error asking me if I'd like to view the output of what happened. This is essentially the information that I have in the above error.

Alberto Milone, the guy who made Envy (I think), told me after viewing my log files that I should probably come here (see: http://albertomilone.com/wordpress/?p=94#comment-2905 ). At that link you will also be able to scroll down and read my log files.

I recently found out that if I use the "nvidia" driver in my xorg.conf file it will now load and Beryl works, but my network connection doesn't ever connect. When I change it back to "nv" Beryl doesn't completely work and my connection does work.

Naturally I would like to have both working beryl and a network connection under the correct drivers. Any suggestions? I tried loading NvAGP with "nvidia" in my xorg.conf but my network connection was still not working.

100.14.09 is no longer supported. Does the 'Uknown GPU' warning persist with 100.14.11?

Networking problems should be directed towards the maintainer of the network driver that you're using.

I just installed the 100.14.11 driver. Now gnome will not start. I get a blank screen. If I press an arrow button, the blank screen changes to an error. It tells me that x failed to start and that I can view the output. The output says that "xstrap" failed to load. I don't know where to go from here. I can't even start gnome now. I know how to edit the xorg.conf file.

Remove this line from xorg.conf:
Load "xstrap"

I have removed the line " Load "xstrap" " but now it doesn't say anything about xstrap when it gives me an error about loading x. There are also no visible (EE)'s. I'm attaching the Xorg.0.log and the new nvidia-bug-report.log is soon to follow.

The current problem is that even after removing the Load "xstrap" line in my xorg.conf file, gnome still will not load. It seems that my 6800xt doesn't want to load w/ the correct nvidia driver as you had asked me to install. 100.14.11.
