Linux - How can I increase the amount of data printed in the X log file?


By default, the NVIDIA X driver prints relatively few messages to

stderr and the X log file.  If you need to troubleshoot, then it may

be helpful to enable more verbose output by using the X command line

options "-verbose" and "-logverbose" which can be used to set the

verbosity level for the stderr and log file messages, respectively.

The NVIDIA X driver will output more messages when the verbosity

level is at or above 5 (X defaults to verbosity level 1 for stderr

and level 3 for the log file).  So, to enable verbose messaging from

the NVIDIA X driver to both the log file and stderr, you could start

X by doing the following: 'startx -- -verbose 5 -logverbose 5'.
