https://bbs.archlinux.org – After today's update of the Linux kernel to 3.10, I can not start X using the proprietary nvidia driver on my IdeaPad Y500 laptop (MBG2BMH with GeForce GT650M GPU).When I try to do this, it takes a second or two in the "loading GLX" state, after which the screen goes black. My fan goes to max and after a few seconds, the system dies.X logs don't show much:[ 49.888] (**) NVIDIA(0): Enabling 2D acceleration [ 56.164] (EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA GPU at PCI:1:0:0. Please [ 56.164] (EE) NVIDIA(0): check your system's kernel log for addition (HowTos)
