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 maybe 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'.
