Re: Nvidia driver fails to boot X on Debian
thank you both for your replies and willingness to help... I went with bhagabhi's reply, since he/she said that he/she had encountered a problem similar to this...
after uninstalling both, I went in to my init.d folder--and sure enough, there was a file called "nvidia-glx".. after removing that file and reinstalling the driver, I haven't had any problems with it booting...
considering the fact that this is my second post on this forum, I don't know if I need to mark this as solved, or mod anybody up or anything... I can't find a button or link for either, so I'm doing neither.
thanks again to both of you!
