Subject: Problem installing xserver-xorg
[...] When configuring
xserver-xorg it asks if the PCI address for the video card is right (it is),
asks if I want to use a FrameBuffer device (I have tried both yes and no)
and then is comes up with a panel which says:-
A null entry is not permitted for this value.
This is repeated in what appears to be quite a tight look ad-infinitum
and it is quite difficult to break out of (but I did eventually).
This looks like addressed and worked around already (might be). In
the archives you'll find this feedback:

I am trying to add minimal X to a new installation and am getting a
failure during xserver-xorg configuration.
The console / curses display pop-up says "Null value not permitted" OK?
Hope this helps.

The original thread has the subject:
xserver-xorg install/configuration fails with "null value not permitted".
