RE: Problem with video card when installing debian Gnu/Linux.
Thank you for responding.
I have run lspci as root and found that my video-card is
described as an unknown device. The dpkg-reconfigure gives
an error message saying that something is not installed.
I think its time for Unstable/sid. When trying to download
this version of Debian-Linux I cant find the usual i386.
What version of the Unstable/sid should I use for my
AMD processor or can I use sarge?
If you have time and want to respond, its ok if you dont I
appericiate the help you already given, please put my email-
address in the Cc... I have trouble being part of the list
because of the huge amount of emails.
I want to send this to the list though. Maybe someone else
has the same problem.

You need to be root (or you can specify the full path for
the command, but it won't necessarily help you if you need
root permissions to read things anyway). Su to root, or
log in as root, and then run lspci and dpkg-reconfigure
and things will go as clockwork. Which means they'll go
