    Default Nvidia-compiz issues have returned

    The nvidia-compiz issues of 'ol have seem to have arisen once again....

    I'm getting 'nvidia taints kernel' through dmesg, I/O errors with regards to NVIDIA0, and the infamous 'Screens found but none with working config' error....

    I have compared the nvidia-xconfig xorg.conf entries to my current BT3b install and they all match up. Perhaps it's a bad driver install? Kernel misconfiguration?

    I'm pullin out hair at this point. Anyone have this running or at least throw some new ideas at me....please......

    EDIT: I can't even get KDE to load with the vesa drivers..... *sigh*

    Code:
    bt ~ # ls -la /dev/nv*
    crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 195,   0 Jun 20 12:17 /dev/nvidia0
    crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 195, 255 Jun 20 12:17 /dev/nvidiactl
    bt ~ #
    Should nvidiactl be root:root or root:video?

    This is really starting to frustrate me. As far as I can tell everything setting-wise is identical to my BT3b setup, which I am on right now and compiz is working just grand....

    I'm having a brain fart and can't even think of how to change root:root to root:video. Help?!

    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69
