How do I pass the
-logverbose 6 arguments to
startx? It is necessary for submitting a bug report to Nvidia Support.
I like fossfreedom's answer but it isn't what I have done in the past. It might work but I'm not sure keeping the old X instance around is a good thing. Here's what I would do:
After Ubuntu loads to a graphical desktop, drop back to a TTY, log in and run:
It's practically the same, you're just cleaning up the old instance of X before you run the debug instance.
Choose a TTY to login i.e. CTRL + ALT + F1
Login as yourself
to login as root.
I imagine nvidia asked you to run
then you can startx
i.e. this will attempt to start a new X display on TTY 2.
