Hello, it looks like Xorg session is being killed by Steam at Steam startup.
Basically, whenever I try to run Steam, it doesn't even show up - instead, after few seconds everything's gone, and slime pops up allowing me to run new session(but tty with previous one is busy), however everything from previous session is killed, I believe - ram usage stays like after startup. It looks like segfault somewhere, but I'm not sure.
Here's syslog: http://pastebin.com/qP4cNE34
And here's Xorg.log: http://pastebin.com/X6nyauWx
I'd be glad to know how can I fix it. It came up when I was trying to fix another problem, with Thunar not allowing me to use USB, but that's different story...
[ 26.751] (EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the GLX module; please check in your X [ 26.751] (EE) NVIDIA(0): log file that the GLX module has been loaded in your X [ 26.751] (EE) NVIDIA(0): server, and that the module is the NVIDIA GLX module. If [ 26.751] (EE) NVIDIA(0): you continue to encounter problems, Please try [ 26.751] (EE) NVIDIA(0): reinstalling the NVIDIA driver.
Post your xorg.conf.
Bump. Still not fixed
Alad - I've been using properiarity drivers for a long time, never had problem with them. Also, problem didn't occur due to change of drivers.
And when I delete xorg.conf I can't start xorg session.
I had two days ago the (maybe?) same problem, but unfortunately I didn't watched out for problems on the logs.
My way to get steam running again was the following:
1. Install nouveau via smxi
2. boot to desktop & start steam
3. Install nvidia-driver via smxi
4. Steam worked again
Hope it works for others too
