Re: probably a general problem concerning latest X-Version
typo, sorry, x IS NOW running
Thanks for you comments. Based on them, Xis not running. I have not
installed nvidia drivers yet, so I am not taking full advantage of the
hw, but at least its up. I am hoping there is a way to install the
nividia driver without recompiing linux source.

Within the last months I could install several different etch-Versions

Amilo Pro 2055 (graphics VIA UniChrome) without any problems
concerning X. This means, the installer chose, lacking a special
driver for the graphics, the vesa driver, enabling me to install the
proprietary nvidia driver and the one from openchrome.org in a second
step - all without any problems.
Since a couple of days I also get the message about the missing kbd
and mouse modules - on both machines, and using exactly the same old
RC1 installation media. Furthermore, the debian installer installs
only the fglrx (!) driver. The problem also appears the same way using
weekly snapshot and daily build of 2007/01/06.
Manually install xserver-xorg-input-kbd/mouse, xserver-xorg-video-vesa
(the lack of this module after the normal installation is the reason
why just entering the module within xorg.conf doesn't work).
Run dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg, chose the manual recognition of the
graphics card and thus urge X to use the vesa driver.
Then, in a second step the appropriate driver can be installed.
at jdaues: on the Gigabyte system, everything worked fine using the
proprietary driver from nvidia.com. I first had to install
linux-source-2.6.x (there's only one package fiting this scheme
available), linux-headers-<result from uname -r>, pkg-config, x-dev.
The installation had to be done from a text-console with no X running
(which can be achieved easily using kdm, not using gdm, as far as I
at sdpatt: I actually think that this is a bug that ought to be
reported, isn't it? I'm just not sure about how because it's not
obvious to me which packet(s) are concerned ...
