It gave me the same error.  Here is my sgfxi.log

EDIT: Alright false alarm, for some reason it didn't remove nvidia-installer-cleanup so I did that manually and now the nvidia drivers installed properly.

EDIT2: Attempting to launch steam now gives a fatal error because I'm apparently now missing
Code: [Select]
libGL.so.1

Well I managed to get dpkg working again by killing dpkg and the installer.  Now I'm faced with reinstalling my nvidia drivers with smxi.  The problem is smxi reports that I have debian nvidia drivers/installer and refuses to work until I remove them.  Ive done apt-get remove --purge nvidia-* but that did not fix the issue.

One small thing, I was trying to get steam working but it looks like I cannot install ia32-libs-i386 on sid, despite adding i386 multiarch support.  If I use
Code: [Select]
apt-get install libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386
I get a message saying that the nvidia-installer-cleanup wants to run but it just stalls and messes up dpkg.

Is this something I have to live with?  It's not a huge deal, but I can't find any solutions online that work with sid.

The specific steam error (when trying to launch a game) is
Code: [Select]
Could not find required OpenGL entry point 'glGetError'! Either your video card is unsupported, or your OpenGL driver needs to be updated.
EDIT:

Actually now that nvidia-cleanup-installer messed up dpkg I can't even uninstall it or use apt-get in general.  This is great.

Yes I can't believe I forgot to do that, I remembered as soon as I had to leave my computer for lunch.  It appears to have installed correctly now and tty1 is working.  I'm going to wait for a little bit before I mark this as solved, just in case I manage to do more stupid things in the mean time.

It came up as just text.

I reinstalled vsido and smxi cannot uninstall the nouveau drivers so it failed to install the drivers.

After reboot I'm greeted with a flashing cursor at the top left but nothing else.

Hitting enter or ctrl alt f1 didn't have any effect.

Hmm, the frame buffer guide didn't help, and smxi just takes me to the black screen after I tell it to kill the desktop.

I'm pretty certain I was able to access it before installing nvidia drivers.

I installed my drivers (304.84-1) via:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install nvidia-kernel-dkms nvidia-glx nvidia-xconfig nvidia-settings

Everything else is working just fine with my drivers.  Should I try out 313.26-1?  I'm a little worried about the stability.

Could it be something with the framebuffer?

Alright I ran that, it certainly changed what grub looks like (for the better in my opinion) but I still get a completely black screen if I use ctrl alt f1.  My primary monitor's light blinks after 5 seconds, so it looks like no input is being sent to it.

Using text compare I didn't find any differences, but here it is.

No I did not change the grub resolution, at least not intentionally, and it doesn't appear to have changed either.

I also tried hitting enter after the black screen but it didn't seem to do anything.

Hi again guys, VSIDO is still running fine for the most part but I'm getting a black screen when trying to access tty1 with ctrl+alt+f1.  Is this not the correct way to access it?  I'm able to go back with the standard ctrl+alt+f7 so I'm a bit confused.

Thanks.

I'm going to mark this as solved since you guys demolished all of the problems I was having.

Again, thanks.

I'd like to give both of you a big thanks, both of you gave very quick and informative replies.

I was able to fix all of the issues except my conky configuration (which luckily is the least troublesome or pressing).

I was hoping to get my conky to look more like this, I'm guessing it is not a vanilla version that comes with VSIDO.

Also, I wasn't able to stop it from auto starting despite unchecking it in the startup & session as well as commenting it out in my autostart.sh.

Regardless, you've made my experience with this distro wonderful. I'll be checking out the conky subforum soon.

Hi all I just installed VSIDO yesterday, after having problems with crunchbang on my hardware.

So far I'm liking it, but I do have some issues with it.  I've taken a screenshot and added some notes to better explain what exactly I want to change.  If you need more information I'd be happy to post it.

Thanks for your time.
