Today i noticed that Ctrl+Alt+Fn does not work in X any more (i can't switch into vt outside X), is that a new "feature" in udev or some new bug in nvidia drivers, or something else that i'm not aware of? 8O

Kollin I too am experiencing this on my ~amd64 laptop. Once the new Nvidia driver loads it refuses to allow any framebuffer graphics. If I Ctrl+Alt+Fn I can no longer get a vt console, nor when I log out of X can I get one either (just a blank screen). Furthermore, Tuxonice no longer works, as the computer hibernates properly, but without any graphic displays indicating progress (also just a blank screen) and at shutdown all of my framebuffer splash screens vanish in the same way.

I'm going to file a bug report on this on gentoo bugzilla, but my guess is this is an upstream issue. I'll post back with that information for others to join in that thread.

However, I think that you shouldn't mark this thread as being solved, because you didn't really solve the problem just masked and temporarily postponed it. This is because these newer Nvidia drivers (304.84) are the first (and only) to support the new Xorg-1.14 API for those of us with "legacy" cards. It may not be an issue now because of using an older xorg-server, but it will be a serious issue when xorg-server-1.14 eventually hits the stable arches.

Edit: I filed this bug report https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=461448

I encourage you or anyone else with this issue to chime in here and on that thread.

Hmm, i think you are correct. I will change the title again :wink:
I'm going to follow the bug report also. 8)

For the last month or so I've been having similar "blank screen when switching to terminal" issues, except I'm using ati-drivers. Looking at my package.mask file, the problem occurs on 13.2_beta7, 13.3_beta2, and 13.3_beta3, and I've kept going back to 13.1, since that seems to be the last release that doesn't have the problem. I have no idea if the problem is solvable on my end or if I just have to hope somebody at AMD realizes there's a problem, and hope that it gets solved soon. Given my experience with how Portage is maintained, I'm sort of surprised 13.1 is still in the repo.

You can use xrandr with 2 simple scripts and bind them to some key combinations:

videomodeswitch+
Code:
#!/bin/sh

LC_ALL=C

CURRENT_MODE=$( xrandr | grep '[0-9]\*' | sed -e 's:\(^ *\)\([0-9]*x[0-9]*\).*:\2:' )
PANNING_RES=$( xrandr | grep '[0-9].+' | sed -e 's:\(^ *\)\([0-9]*x[0-9]*\).*:\2:' )
echo ${PANNING_RES}

ALL_MODES=( $( xrandr | grep -E "^ *[0-9]" | sed -e 's:\(^ *\)\([0-9]*x[0-9]*\).*:\2:' | sort -grs ) )

index=${#ALL_MODES[@]}

i=0

while [ "$i" -lt "$index" ]
do
    if [ "${CURRENT_MODE}" == "${ALL_MODES[i]}" ]
    then
   m=$((i-1))
   if [ "$m" -eq "-1" ]
   then
      m=$((${index}-1))
   fi
   NEXT_MODE="${ALL_MODES[m]}"
    fi
    let "i+=1"
done
xrandr -s "${NEXT_MODE}"


videomodeswitch-
Code:
#!/bin/sh

LC_ALL=C

CURRENT_MODE=$( xrandr | grep '[0-9]\*' | sed -e 's:\(^ *\)\([0-9]*x[0-9]*\).*:\2:' )
PANNING_RES=$( xrandr | grep '[0-9].+' | sed -e 's:\(^ *\)\([0-9]*x[0-9]*\).*:\2:' )
echo ${PANNING_RES}

ALL_MODES=( $( xrandr | grep -E "^ *[0-9]" | sed -e 's:\(^ *\)\([0-9]*x[0-9]*\).*:\2:' | sort -gs ) )

index=${#ALL_MODES[@]}

i=0

while [ "$i" -lt "$index" ]
do
    if [ "${CURRENT_MODE}" == "${ALL_MODES[i]}" ]
    then
   m=$((i-1))
   if [ "$m" -eq "-1" ]
   then
      m=$((${index}-1))
   fi
   NEXT_MODE="${ALL_MODES[m]}"
    fi
    let "i+=1"
done
xrandr -s "${NEXT_MODE}"

I just noticed that I have the same problem with nvidia-drivers 325.15 and kernel 3.8.13.

I'll try to downgrade the nvidia-drivers to the immediate previous versions as I got the 325.15 few days ago and last time I used the virtual terminal wasn't long ago. I'll let you know.

Update
Neither nvidia-drivers version 325.08 nor 319.32 seem to allow me to access the virtual terminals.

I don't remember exactly when it was the last time I accessed the virtual terminal, but I am sure it wasn't long ago.

Unfortunately I just reinstalled Gentoo on my system recently (and I have accessed the virtual terminals since then even with nvidia-drivers) so I cannot simply check and reverse any recent modification I made since there is a lot I did in the last two weeks (it took so much because I had an out-of-home vacation in between the process); therefore I have to ask if anyone is aware of something else in specific that may interfere with the virtual terminals.

Thanks in advance.


Update 2
Solved. In my case it was the g15daemon that was interfering; killed it and now I can easily access the virtual terminals. :D

I have to investigate its problems, but this is a different issue. :P

Im using nvidia-325.15 with linux-3.11.1 and I have no tty's.

The card is a GT650m (no optimus).

I can see the bootup process fine, but after X is started, I cant switch to any ctrl-alt-Fx.

It also doesnt work to switch back to X afterwords, so I have to reboot using ctrl-alt-delete.

Anybody know what to to fix this?:)
