Do you still have this problem with latest xserver-xorg? (1:7.3+6 is in

Problem still exists with 1:7.3+6 :
dexconf: error: cannot generate configuration file;
xserver-xorg/config/device/driver not set. Aborting. Reconfigure the X server
with "dpkg-reconfigure" to correct this problem.
Also, the dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg process fails to detect my
monitor (A Samsung Syncmaster 710T). Or at least I presume that it
fails to do so: after the attempt at autodetection I end up being
asked to give the full monitor specs regardless. The Xserver detects
the monitor just fine as far as I can see from the logs. Should I file
a separate bug?
Looks like not all of 1:7.3+7 has arrived yet. I'll try it when it
It may be relevant that this machine has been pretty much continually
upgraded for the last six or seven years, mostly tracking
unstable. It's not exactly a fresh install of Debian ;)
