This is not a laptop specific problem, but it's quite important.
I have debian testing installed on a Compaq presario 700 and kernel 2.6
(and 2.4.22) self-compiled.
Everything (rather) pretty much works.
However, today, I did apt-get dist-upgrade and it upgraded quite a few
packages. Amongst them, it got rid of acroread (??) and didn't manage at
first to install some new libmesa3 libraries or something. Anyway, after
all was finished, and xserver-common was upgraded, X wouldn't work any
It took me quite some time to sort things out and at the end, I decided to
downgrade X to the stable versions. Things got back on track again.
The errors it was giving to me, were about not finding symbols in
has anybody got any idea what's going on here?
