For whatever reason, when I turn on my computer, X does not want to start.

I'm running the latest stable version of KDE, beta (343.22) Nvidia drivers, and currently running the 3.17.0 kernel.

Here's the issue. After startup, all I see is a login prompt at the command line. I log in and check if xdm is running. It is, however, X failed to start for whatever reason. Here's the weird thing, if I issue this command "sudo service xdm restart" X will then load kdm like it normally does.

This happens regardless if it's a reboot or a cold boot. I tried asking in the IRC room with no answers.

Any ideas?

It'll run into an error. I can't be specific at the moment because I'm not at the computer. I'll post it tomorrow along with the log.

I can think of two possibilities:

A) X is starting but for some reason you are automatically changed to vt1, you can check that by pressing control+alt+f7 and seeing if the X session is still there (try control+alt+f6 and below because the concrete number can vary depending on your /etc/inittab file).

B) maybe the nvidia kernel module is taking a bit longer to start than it should and it's not fully initialized when X takes into scene (that'd explain why it works a few seconds later). You can easily check this by doing the following: reboot, wait until you are left at the login prompt, don't start X or xdm, instead, look into /var/log/Xorg.0.log for errors and save it so you can post it later, also look into the dmesg output and see if you can find something interesting there.

Also, and just in case, check that you have no fb driver enabled (nvidia doesn't play nice with any of them), check that you have nouveau disabled in your kernel or blacklisted, also blacklist "drm" (another user in the forum had a problem with that the past week) and check the output of "eselect opengl list" to see if it's set to "nvidia".

I just thought of it,

C) Maybe you added the "xdm" service to boot, instead of default. That would also explain why X is starting before your video driver has been loaded. If that's the case, I advice you to join the mass and move "xdm" from the boot runlevel to the default one, which is where it is intended to be. Also, if you are one of the daring that have rc_parallel="yes" in /etc/rc.conf, please, disable that and try again.

I think it may have been the Nvidia module taking to long to load. I've never had to add "nvidia" to the /etc/conf.d/modules config and it has always loaded by itself when kdm would start.

All I did was add "nvidia" to the /etc/conf.d/modules file and it works perfectly now.
