1 The dri messages are normal for nvidia.
3 Run revdep-rebuild to fix the png issue.

10 About 6 days ago, I updated my system and since then, I can't boot into X.
11 My nvidia driver loads okay and it looks like it is going to start X, but
12 then reverts to the command line. I've been sick and haven't really been
13 able to follow this up.
15 Also note that I can't provide any output because I am, obviously, not on my
16 computer. Details are as follows:
18 From my kdm log the last few lines are as follows:
20 (EE) Failed to load module "dri" (module does not exist, 0)
21 (EE) Failed to load module "dri2" (module does not exist, 0)
22 /usr/lib/kde4/libexec/kdm_greet: error while loading shared libraries:
23 cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
25 I don't have a dri USE flag in my make.conf file
26 The dri line in my xorg.conf file exists, but it is commented
27 I do not build dri into my kernel
29 Yesterday, I decided to try another update to see if there was an ebuild
30 that might have corrected whatever the problem was
32 On attempting to upgrade gtk+, it fails and I get told to run:
33 emerge --info =x11-libs/gtk+-2.18.9
35 When I do that, there is a USE line which includes dri and I'm not sure
36 where that is being pulled from unless it is global because as stated
37 previously, I don't have a dri USE flag in my make.conf or an active line in
38 my xorg.conf file.
40 Regarding libpng - on my first upgrade 6 days ago, I removed libpng prior to
41 doing the update because the updated libpng file was being blocked by the
42 existing one. I don't know if this makes a difference.
44 Any advice on how to fix this?
