Xorg - no screens found

Postby A.r.k.a.n.a » 2018-05-31 11:28

Dear community,
yesterday I came to the glorious idea, to install the proprietary nvidia driver on my Debian Stretch System.
Result: the GUI didn't start at all (no login-screen).

In order to fix that I followed the guideline for "Backing out in case of failure"
at: https://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphicsDrivers#Backing_out_in_case_of_failure

It seemed to be promising, since I get now my GUI-Login-screen
But when I try to login, it kicks me out right away.
So I checked the Logfile under /home/.../.local/share/xorg/Xorg.1.log
What I basically got is, that it doesn't find any screen.

Here is the full content of Xorg.1.log:

Thank you arochester!

I red the recommendations under your suggested link.
It seems to be a fairly similar issue. But in my case, the instructions in https://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphicsDrivers#Backing_out_in_case_of_failure didn't solve the problem.
It brought me some steps further which is great. It seems the nvidia is really wiped and it seems I got the nouveau back.

So as I wrote before, I got my login-screen back - awesome! :D
But when I try to login, it kicks me out, back to the login-screen right away.
The content of the Xorg.1.log-file shows a
"Fatal server error:
[ 1062.057] (EE) no screens found(EE)
[ 1062.057] (EE)"

Actually in the beginning it showed me a slightly different error "xorg server fatal error: Cannot open /dev/tty0 (Permission denied) "
In order to solve this I gave rw-rw-rw- permission to the /dev/tty0
I hope, this was ok to do!??

No it supposedly doesn't find any screen.
Can someone tell me, what I did wrong and how I can fix this problem?

Is it ok that I created a new topic about it, or should I repost it under: http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=137642 ?

Thank you in advance

Hurray - problem solved!!! :D

I just had to delete /etc/X111/xorg.conf
and to reboot.
And everything is back to normal.
