Ok, this is funny... Judging by the log, for all intents and purposes X seems
to be actually running without any trouble.
How exactly did you start the X session? From telinit 3, using startx? Going
back to telinit 5? What exactly do you see on the screen when you try it?
[ 187.383] (--) using VT number 7
[ 188.799] (II) NVIDIA(0): --- Modes in ModePool for ViewSonic VA912-3SERIES
[ 188.799] (II) NVIDIA(0): "nvidia-auto-select" : 1280 x 1024 @ 60.0 Hz
(from: X Server, VESA, EDID)
[ 188.854] (II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "nvidia-auto-select"
[ 188.980] (II) NVIDIA(0): First mode initialized
[ 188.987] (II) NVIDIA(0): Using built-in logo image.
>From the above I would say that the X session is up and running, using
1280x1024, on virtual terminal 7. A very dumb question: which VT are you
looking at? Did you try to do a CTRL-ALT-F7 after starting X?
Then later at some point you press the shutdown button,
[ 191.486] (II) evdev: Power Button: Close
[ 191.496] (II) Unloading evdev
[ 192.203] Server terminated successfully (0). Closing log file.
and the X server shuts down cleanly.
Bottomline --- from where I sit (ie. according to the log file), X is actually
running on your machine, and very happily so, without any trouble at all. The
vNidia driver even reports displaying the nVidia logo picture during the
It would be a good idea to describe what you actually see on the screen,
because nothing in the log shows any problems.
