XFree86 on SARGE
Well, I gritted it out and did the 2 day long aptitude dist-upgrade from
Woody to Sarge, after numerous questions as to why I didn't. The iso I
downloaded for Sarge must've become corrupted, because the cd-rw I burnt
it on wouldn't boot any kernels, apt-cdrom kept giving me read errors,
and then I tried to mount it in OS X and that gave me an error.
But those woes aside, is there a way to add another mirror to the
sources.list file, the one I was using didn't have some packages on it.
In case those are important. It also told me it would install mutt but
wouldn't, I'm figuring the reason to be one of those is a dependency for
it, I could be wrong. I think it has something to do with email, right?
I have attached my XFree86.0.log hoping someone can make heads or tails
out of it, I can't, and the error it quits on I have no clue. "Can't
find any screens" Undoubtedly I have a configuration problem. In case
it's a pci problem (my first thought) when I initially configured it it
asked for a pci address for my card, I left it at the default which was
0:17:0, I think. And then doing an lspci it looks like my card is at
0:10:0, but then in the log it looks like my pci bus is being probed by
xfree anyway, so I could be wrong. I will google it for a while, but
any help is appreciated
