Broken login screen debian squeeze


I installed Debian Squeeze on an old IBM (http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/deta...cID=MIGR-39548), but the login screen is unusable (It shows up as a white empty space in an otherwise normal looking screen)
I was looking for the xorg.conf file but that is only to be found under xserver-xorg/examples so I don't know where to start.
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg does nothing, just returns to the command line

Any ideas are welcome!

Hi,

unless you have fairly "unique" hardware you shouldn't need an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.

I suggest you start by looking at the log file. Ie.
Code:
less /var/log/Xorg.0.log
HTH,

Evo2.

Thanks, but what exactly am I looking for? What I can find that looks wrong to me is a whole bunch of limes like:
(II) NOUVEAU(0): Not using default mode "800x600" (unknown reason)
(II) NOUVEAU(0): Not using default mode "800x600" (vrefresh out of range)
(II) NOUVEAU(0): Not using default mode "800x600" (hsync out of range)

(II) NOUVEAU(0): Not using default mode "1368x768" (monitor doesn't support reduced blanking) (in one instance)

So, there actually does not seem to be a single usable resolution?

Thumbs up

If there's no /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, then perhaps you need one. In that case, as root, kill X if it's running, then run
Code:
Xorg -configure
to create the file xorg.conf.new. Once this file is appropriately tweaked, copy it to /etc/X11/xorg.conf and restart X (or reboot). If you've tweaked it appropriately, everything will work as it should. On my system, I've customized the monitor section as shown below, then added the 1680x1050 mode to the screen section. If your monitor can handle it without frying itself, based on the output you showed, I'd try a broader range of sync rates first. Good luck!
Code:
Section "Monitor"
	#UseModes     "Modes0" #monitor0usemodes
	Identifier   "Monitor0"
	VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
	ModelName    "Monitor Model"
	DisplaySize  432	270
	HorizSync    30.0 - 86.0
	VertRefresh  56.0 - 76.0
	ModeLine     "1680x1050" 147.1 1680 1784 1968 2256 1050 1051 1054 1087 -hsync +vsync
EndSection

no changes yet, but Xorg -configure fails

I tried the changes and tried running Xorg -configure which fails with (EE) [drm] No DRICreatePCIBusID symbol and Number of created screens does not match nuber of detected devices. Configuration failed.

Funny, but I cannot find the previous errors in /var/log/Xorg.0.log, but it still does not work. I managed to log in "blind" once, but it is not workable. Googling around I found that it possibly had to do with nvidia and nouveau not playing together, but I
haven't found anything useful yet.

Thanks for your help

Have given up.

I am installing Lenny again. I know that works. I have no time for trying out all kind of things. There does not seem to be a clear solution. To me it is very disappointing, I have had better experiences with Debian. Thanks for your help anyway.

This is driving me slowly insane. Nothing I do seems to have any effect. The login screen stays unusable. I reinstalled Lenny which worked fine but I need Squeeze (I am running Koha and it needs newer versions of packages). I tried to upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze with the final result being a black screen. Utterly useless. Apparently the cause is somewhere with nvidia and nouveau, but I would happily go back to nvidia drivers if it works. I hope somebody can help me out here, I am lost now

The log file is still the place to look. If it makes no sense to you, then perhaps you could post it here. You can often get problems if you still have some of the nonfree nvidia drivers installed and X is trying to use nouveau. Such problems should be apparent in the log.

Also you can check tosee if you have any old nonfree nvidia drivers llurking on your system. Try:
Code:
dpkg -l '*nvidia*'
Evo2.

Things get really problematic if you've got more than one of the nv, nvidia, and nouveau kernel modules loaded
Code:
sudo lsmod | grep ^n[ov]

Thanks,

dpkg -l '*nvidia*' returns 'no packages found matching *nvidia*

sudo lsmod | grep ^n[ov] returns 'nouveau 314892 1'

So possibly it has nothing to do with nvidia

I would happily post the log file, but at the moment I have no idea where it mounts my usb drive (not in /media/disk anyway) still looking, if I can get the log file out of the IBM I will post it.

Well, I am definitely stuck; I cannot find the USB drive, the floppy drive does not seem to work and I do not have internet connection (which is odd because I did a netinstall) No idea how to get the log out

I have shortened teh log file

I shortened my log file a bit, hope I didn't skip anything important. Since I am leaving for Edmonton tonight I will not have a chance to try any solutions before next Sunday. Any ideas are welcome.

Hi,

not sure if this really is the cause, but the following error is reported.
Code:
(EE) AIGLX error: dlopen of /usr/lib/dri/nouveau_vieux_dri.so failed (/usr/lib/dri/nouveau_vieux_dri.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)
(EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering
On my system that so is provided by libgl1-mesa-dri-experimental.d

Evo2.

PS. In future, it is probably better to upload the whole file as an attachement instead of cut-n-paste in to the text of your post.
