Re: X getting close (was X won't start)

Yup, that worked!!!

Looks like my keyboard is *way* scambled now, though.

When I started X and ran a terminal, the keys did not match what I was typing. And it looks like my resolution is 640 by 480, but it's trying to display something much bigger, I'm missing some of the screen.

When I did a forced restart (Mac key command) I got a GUI login instead of text which I specified at install.

And I can't log in because my keys aren't mapped right?

There's a little consol in the bottom right corner. When I try to log in as root I get tab (jumps to the other field) ssw

instead of root

When I do backspace (delete) it types commas.

when I try to type my user (marc) I get "nothing typed" for "m" If I try to do commandF2 or commandF3 or optionF2 or optionF3 to get a terminal, I get nothing (of course Debian isn't seeing it as commandF2 ??)

Can I force a text login somehow, and what keyboard fixes/resolution fixes am I looking for??

Try my attached XFconfig. It's for control on a 7600.

Substitute my Dell Monitor with yours, and make sure to correct the
horizontal and vertical frequency range.

 Thanks Michel.

 I think I'm close. startx seems to want to restart the monitor under
 X but maybe having mouse trouble.

 (EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/input/mice

 This 8600, of course, has an ADB Mouse II mouse, should that be
 entered anywhere in Input Devices?


 Input devices had two sections for mice:

 "Configured Mouse"


 "Generic Mouse"

 I have commented out "Generic"

That's debconf-generated XFConfig. Doesn't do any harm.

 what do I put in /dev/input/mice to make this work.

as root# cd dev; ./MAKEDEV input

 Potato 2.2r0 upgraded to Woody.

Strange; input devices should have been created then...

Many have Montana envy ... the lucky get to live here!
