I upgraded to Xorg-X11 6.8, and reinstalled the nvidia-1.0-6.111 drivers. Upon trying to start X, I get an error saying "no devices detected" (full log at http://www.eng.uwaterloo.ca/~rbaverst/Xorg.0.log
). Config file did not change from 6.7 to 6.8. Using the stock "nv" driver works.
modprobe nvidia doesn't complain, and dmesg says it loaded fine.
Worked beautifully with Xorg 6.7.
Config file has "nvidia" as the driver in the device section.
