I cannot reproduce either, since I hand-edited the XF86Config until it
Plus, chances are (though OpenBSD did install), that the trouble was with
the notebook. DELL-crap: Memory Problem, then broken motherboard, followed
by broken display; all within 10 days. Now I have another notebook. Audio
had also been screwed up.
Now the question goes like this: shall we close this and consider the
trouble based on a bad machine ?
On the other hand, I'd like to help Debian to get better. Therefore: shall I
still send you the info as requested further down ?
