Since an automatic update which add X server (Xorg), problem on loading NVIDIA kernel module appears. Before Xorg doesn't appear in current process, that's why conclude that Xorg had been added.

Here is the /var∕log/Xorg.0.log :

[  4931.982]    Module class: X.Org Video Driver

Here is my graphic card:

$ lspci| grep VGA

Is it possible to solve this issue?

Thanks

You should try uninstalling and reinstalling your NVidia driver. Sometimes it doesn't get built in to the new kernel if it's upgraded. –  searchfgold6789 Oct 5 '13 at 13:49

The error message tells you what to do. "Please check your system's kernel log for additional error messages." Have a look in dmesg. –  Oli Oct 5 '13 at 14:25

I finally found the issue. For developpement purpose I had to link gcc into gcc-4.4. So to resolve my issue I had to link gcc to my latest: gcc-4.7. Next basic procedure to reinstall driver works.

I faced similar problem after an upgrade to 13.04 it was all good until 12.10 version. I did the following

#uninstall the nvidia current driver.**
sudo apt-get remove nvidia-current

#use bumblebee 
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bumblebee/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install bumblebee

More details can be found here

What does Bumblebee have to do with this question? He does not have an Optimus setup (only one graphics card!). –  gertvdijk Oct 6 '13 at 20:41
    
@Rohit Kalhans: irrelevant answer. Any other ideas ? –  Katsu Oct 11 '13 at 16:17
