No X after nvidia driver install :(

Upgrading to F7 seems to be one problem after another.

This morning I installed the nvidia graphics drivers to get the GLX effects back. But now I have a problem.
The drivers appeared to install but on restarting xserver I just got an error.

(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) No drivers available.

Fatal server error:
no screens found
X10: fatal error IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

/ect/X11/xorg.conf is completely blank.

I don't know where to start, any ideas?

Type as root
Code:
nvidia-xconfig
it should generate nice xorg.conf for you.

I reinstalled the driver, and this time xserver started . I do get the nvidia splash screen .I cannot enable Desktop Effects though .

Any ideas?

here is the output from nvidia-xconfig:

Using X configuration file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf".
Backed up file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' as '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup'
New X configuration file written to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'

Your system works because now you have xorg.conf but I bet you are still using "nv" driver. You have to switch to "nvidia" for proprietary NVidia driver. You can do it manually (CLI) or using "Livna Display Configuration" tool.

My /ect/X11/xorg.conf is completely empty surley this can't be good?

Can you explain the livna repro connection, as I seem to remember having to use this before. Are there still libraries I need?

You need to run Livna Display Configuration tool, it is located in System Tools (Gnome). It will generate xorg.conf and enable NVidia drivers.

init 1
X -configure
cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf

@small_cake I don't have that there, I haven't activated livna repo yet is why I can't see it?

@Leigh

I tried what you said, got this:

Fatal server error:
Server is already active for display 0
If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
and start again.

No that fails on the last command says something like xorg.conf.new file does not exist.

No need to kill X, just run
Code:
system-config-display --reconfig
which updates xorg.conf in-place.

Did the X -configure command say where it had written the new file ?

Ok I tried what you suggested Firewing1.

Only now I do not get the nvidia splash screen, and the desktop effects still do not work. It seems like I'm back where I started. I'm sure it wasn't this much hassle before.
