X-server doesn't start

Bug #367539 reported by Juergen Nonn on 2009-04-26
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
xserver-xorg-video-nv (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I've just installed Ubuntu 9.04 and it keeps telling me that there is already an xserver running at console 0.
As I am a far cry from being a Linux expert, may I refer you to the logfile that comes attached with this report.

Further point: I installed the NVIDIA proprietary graphics driver but when I do succeed getting to the Gnome desktop (don't ask me how I did) that the NVIDIA driver is not running.

I would be very grateful for your help.

Thanks in advance

But what do I make of this hint, please:

** Package changed: ubuntu => xorg (Ubuntu)?

Hi j-nonn,

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue for you? Can you try with the latest development release of Ubuntu? (ISO CD images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/)

If it remains an issue, could you also attach a new /var/log/Xorg.0.log?
Thanks in advance.
