Lightbulb Re: Apparently installation without a problem but X server doen't start

See ... This helped me. I was missing development stuff.

For some reason, an earlier upgrade failed. I tried to fix it and made it worse (got your module errors) after I did an apt-get distupgrade.

Reading package lists...
Building dependency tree...
Correcting dependencies... Done

Need to get 6496kB of archives.
After unpacking 118MB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]?

Then, I noticed stuff missing, so I reinstalled them. Then, I noticed missing Xorg development stuff missing (xorg-dev) which I think nvidia installer needed!

I hope this helps.
