broken Xorg [Was: new user question: debian on a Thinkpad T61]
Updates on the situation
I've shrunk Vista and left it as the first partition on the HD. After
looking around, I think that my laptop does not have a recovery
partition, which is rather strange. There is no Rescue and Recovery
ThinkVantage tool, or anything that says create recovery media at all.
I went ahead and installed Debian anyway, using the netinstall CD, and
the install process went fine (no error messages that I could see).
However, xorg fails to start upon reboot. The xorg.conf is currently
using the nv driver. In the end of log are the following lines:
(EE) No Devices detected.
Fatal server error:
no screens found
My graphics card is an nVidia Quadro NVS 140M, but lspci shows it as:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Unknown device 0429
Any ideas on how to fix this?
Thanks in advance,
