Re: install problems Xorg

thanks for the help... still it doesn't work... even with your
xorg.conf (slightly modified for my screen resolution

I attach the log.log file

I still believe that something is wrong with my install. Everytime I
try it (~7 so far) the "GENERIC" cannot be loaded and then I get a
warning that the kernel module could not be found or loaded or

Just in case of I reburnt the iso file but the problem is the same. My
laptop is an ibm t43p. I can send you dmesg if you wish...

Please, could you try Xorg -configure -verbose 2>log.log.
It might generate appropriate hw sections for you.
Also see attached my xorg.conf, it might work for you,
as we both have driver ati.

You can also try to use driver vesa.

These modules are not kernel modules, but xorg modules,
they should be in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/

ls -l /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/
total 66
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 11692 Oct  7 16:35 kbd_drv.so
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 11692 Oct  7 16:35 keyboard_drv.so
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 41368 Oct  3 12:03 mouse_drv.so

Do you have installed packages xserver-xorg-input-kbd
and xserver-xorg-input-mouse ?

For list of other possible packages try
"apt-cache search xserver-xorg"

Hope it helps.
