Unexpected X-problems: the dpkg-configure left the machine not starting X; (my trusted) XFree86 -configure didn't find a mouse; xf86cfg neither. Some 'no screens found' inbetween, as well. Finally, I had to change the XF86Config manually to get it finding the optical USB-wheel-mouse (the famous ZAxisMapping; and "IMPS/2" plus "/dev/input/mice"). No flames here, but the third OS on that exactly same hardware went through without *any* tweaking of any parameter; just install, reboot; XFree86 -configure and ready. For some the least likely contender for simplicity: OpenBSD 3.5. This is why I wrote 'unexpected'. And don't flame me for wrong pseudo-package; please; we'd expect Debian to *install* one fine day without hangs and tweaks on standard hardware like a DELL notebook.

Thanks !
