(solved)Xorg update: Startx does not work

Complains of no drivers for video_cards=intel, and some ABI error. Postinf from another PC
In /etc/portage/make.conf, I have VIDEO_CARDS="intel"

Keyboard is working
Any suggestions for solving this appreciated. (After reboot, startx is not working)

By the way, I did not know you are Oleg Vinichenko. Read on the website

you have to rebuild x11-drivers

# emerge @x11-module-rebuild

or

# emerge -1 $(qlist -IC x11-drivers/)

Thanks. Your suggestion worked. Everything's OK.

But, as I said some time ago, just a word in 'news announcements' page would have helped.

I always check here before upgrading

well, sorry about that. THis is very well known fact, that every X bump, ABI is changed, so you have to rebuild drivers.

there is also an ewarn that is on the screen when you build it:

		ewarn "You must rebuild all drivers if upgrading from <xorg-server-$(get_version_component_range 1-2)"
		ewarn "because the ABI changed. If you cannot start X because"
		ewarn "of module version mismatch errors, this is your problem."

		echo
		ewarn "You can generate a list of all installed packages in the x11-drivers"
		ewarn "category using this command:"
		ewarn "	emerge portage-utils; qlist -I -C x11-drivers/"
		ewarn "or using sets from portage-2.2:"
		ewarn "	emerge @x11-module-rebuild"

you really must read those when your emerge is finished, they contain information that is truly useful, and many times needful.

Thanks, angry_vincent, Azerthoth

From next upgrade, I will really take care. I never read those messages. Also, as vincent stated, I was not aware that drivers are to be rebuilt after xorg-server upgrade.

Thanks again to both of you
