How can I startX server from an SSH session?
Anyway, I've updated Xorg to 1.7 version, I've installed 256.52 nvidia driver but nothing changed.
Actually, in the Xorg.0.log file two errors appeared about "kbd" and "mouse" modules, which have not been found..(see attached file). But after the first driver installation, X server starts without problems!! Glx drivers are loaded correctly, fb support seems to be present (by glxinfo)...
Anyway, I'm wondering if any daemon loaded before X server may negatively interact with it. In some posts I read some issues about hal and Xorg 1.7 for example..
Finally: I tried to substitute "Driver" value ("nvidia") in "Device" section with "nv": in this way I can log in (through graphical kdm interface), but after the first loading stage (in the KDE splash screen) the X server halts.
Any other suggestions?
P.S. Also forgot: I removed xserver-xgl package, since Xorg loaded those driver instead of "/modules/estensions" ones.
