This is truly problematic for my, because it is my workstation of house
which I use also to work in my house.

I don't know if there is to use some type of standard structure to
provide information, but the problem that you comment only seems to be
with 'vesa' drivers rather than 'nv' and 'nvidia', although with these
other two I could not either make work X.

I'm not using that kernel parameter. Would have to try it or you asked
to me because this parameter can cause problems?

I'm using GRUB2. I not yet know much on the configuration of this GRUB
version, but apparently it is only being applied 'noapic' and 'quiet'
according to I see in /etc/default/grub:

defiant:~# cat /etc/default/grub
# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update
# /boot/grub/grub.cfg.

GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`

# Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only)

# The resolution used on graphical terminal
# note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via
# you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'

# Uncomment if you don't want GRUB to pass "root=UUID=xxx" parameter to
# Linux

# Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entrys

Thanks for your reply.
