    Default Startx won't work after installing nvidia drivers [log attached] [BT5]

    Yeah. Sooo I recently installed nvidia drivers on my BT5 KDE and now it gives me an error when I try to type startx. I managed to get the logfile from /var/logs (?) so I'll attach it to this thread. If you need more information, please tell me! I hope someone is willing to help a noob like me...

    Here's the log: Xorg.0.log.txt Note that the original file was a .log file, but I had to change the extension to be able to upload it. Also, the file looks better if you open it in Notepad++ or something.

    Help will be very appreciated!

    I had the same problem yesterday after running update.
    After reboot, I tried to log in to the new 2.36.8.8 and got the same error.
    Rebooted again and going to the previous version 2.36.8 ,startx worked fine.
    Fortunately I still had the previously downloaded NVIDIA.run file, so I rebooted again to the 2.38.8.8 and reinstalled the driver.
    Now it works fine.
