Default X broken in rawhide?

I updated a couple of machines that were "week old" rawhide to latest rawhide. On both machines, X wouldn't start. The log file said it couldn't find a display 0, apparently because the driver is not the correct version.


One machine is a desktop with nv driver, the other is a laptop with intel driver.

The workaround for me was to restore an earlier version of X.

I haven't seen anyone else reporting X problems. Is there something I've missed?

I've seen X upgrades wiping out the ModulePath sections in
/etc/X11/xorg.conf for me.


I've been thinking to file a bug but haven't got around to until now.

If you have a custom driver or so, this affects you.

Hi,

The nv driver was bust about a week back, but it's happy now.

This is intentional, yes. It's even in %post:

# lame, the nvidia driver needs to override this
if ! grep -q 'ModulePath.*nvidia' xorg.conf ; then
perl -p -i -e 's#^s*ModulePath.*$##gi' xorg.conf
fi

We do this because many people used to have a ModulePath section in
their config file, and it changed when we moved to modular X because
drivers were no longer installed in the same place, but if you
explicitly specified a ModulePath you'd continue looking in the old
place. And then X wouldn't start.

If you want to build custom modules by hand, put them in the normal
search path. The only reason the nvidia driver gets a workaround is
because it replaces a library that the X server normally provides and
rpm doesn't have file redirects.

Happened with me and ATI but is all good now.
