You appear to have a motherboard that the PCI bus handling code in
XFree86 4.3.0 doesn't deal with well; a lot of "phantom" buses show up,
and this *may* be confusing the X server into not knowing where to find
your video card.

The good news is, I have backported what claims to be a fix for this
problem from XFree86 CVS to Debian's SVN repository for our XFree86
packages, and if you can build and test packages from the "SVN trunk",
you will be in a position to confirm whether this bad PCI bus handling
is the problem, or if something else is going wrong as well.

Are you in a position to build and test xfree86 packages?  Instructions
are at:


See the section "Building the package".  Please be sure to use revision
1373 or later of the trunk.

I have packages prepared, but unfortunately they are for PowerPC only.
