X problems in debian 3.0r1 - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi All, I've just installed debian and am having problems with the startx, it flashes as if trying to go in from the console then I get the following output, here's the tail of the XFree86.0 log. "Module class: XFree86 XInput Driver ABI class: XFree86 XInput driver, version 0.2 (EE) No drivers available. Fatal server error: no screens found" However I set the screen and graphics card (Nvidia Geforce 2 MX) up using xf86cfg. A friend said that xf86cfg doesn't insert the BusID "PCI:1:1:0" line into XF86CONFIG and he was right so I added it, but that too hasn't helped. ...

    Default X problems in debian 3.0r1

    Hi All,

    I've just installed debian and am having problems with the startx, it
    flashes as if trying to go in from the console then I get the following
    output, here's the tail of the XFree86.0 log.
    "Module class: XFree86 XInput Driver
    ABI class: XFree86 XInput driver, version 0.2
    (EE) No drivers available.

    Fatal server error:
    no screens found"

    However I set the screen and graphics card (Nvidia Geforce 2 MX) up using
    xf86cfg. A friend said that xf86cfg doesn't insert the BusID "PCI:1:1:0"
    line into XF86CONFIG and he was right so I added it, but that too hasn't
    helped. Here's an extract from my XF86CONFIG.

    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Monitor1"
    HorizSync 31.5 - 57.0
    VertRefresh 40.0 - 150.0
    EndSection

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Card0"
    Driver "nv"
    BusID "PCI:1:1:0"
    ChipSet "GeForce"
    Card "NVIDIA GeForce"
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Screen0"
    Device "Card0"
    Monitor "Monitor1"
    DefaultDepth 24
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 8
    Modes "640x480"
    EndSubSection
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 24
    Modes "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
    EndSection

    Section "DRI"
    Mode 0666
    EndSection


    Any ideas what's going on?

    Another way to configure XFree is using:

    dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

    If you want to use it, say "no" when it asks if you want to use the
    Kernel framebuffer.

    Do you have all necessary packages installed (try apt-get install
    x-window-system-core)?

    What about the input devices? Are your keyboard and mouse configured
    properly?

    Or try "XFree86 -configure" and then "XFree86 -xf86config /root
    XF86Config.new" (hit CTRL-ALT-BACKPSACE to shut down X again). If this
    works copy /root/XF86Config.new to /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and try again
    startx ...

    Kind regards, Joerg.
