yeah, I was trying to determine if this
was caused by a change in the xserver,
or a problem with the build of nvidia.
(creating a pure64 is a bit of a pain)

 From what it seems xf86-video-vesa
activates the xserver.

I think what I'll do is downgrade everything
with the xserver(since nvidia seems to have
an abi v5 and the xserver is at abi 7)
just to be safe.
