..note that the "vesa" driver is only useful for diagnosis and 
in really bad cases of hardware failures, as a stopgap driver
while you get another graphics card airlifted in to whereever 
your are.

..assuming you have an intel card, you need the firmware-linux 
(which hauls in firmware-linux-free and firmware-linux-nonfree),
libdrm2:i386 (or libdrm2:amd64), libdrm-intel1:i386 (or 
libdrm-intel1:amd64) and xserver-xorg-video-intel to get these 
cards working, guys, did I miss anything here?
