After installing nvidia packages and rebooting as suggested, X does not
work anymore. The screen stays in text mode, I can use VT1-6, but in VT7
I see only a blinking caret.
lsmod shows nouveau loaded, even if /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-kernel-common.conf
Among other things, also the nvidia module shows up in lsmod output.
I've already tried to manually run update-initramfs -u and rebooting, but
If I rmmod nouveau and restart lightdm, I get nouveau loaded again.
if I rmmod nouveau and nvidia and then restart lightdm, xorg works but with
I suspect nvidia-kernel-common should configure something else in addition to
/etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-kernel-common.conf in order to keep X from loading
My video card is a
nVidia Corporation G96M [Quadro FX 770M] (rev a1)
and upstream proprietary drivers do work as expected (but I never installed
them in this Debian system, I fear what mess they could do in wheezy,
I only installed them in a previous squeeze system I've already erased).
