Debian. Video Driver problem. Apt-get server error.
Hello!. I made a new partition on my hard drive yesterday and installed Debian(latest release) on it as a dual boot between it and Windows XP. My graphics card is a S3 Unichrome Pro IGP which is known to have problems with Linux. I was using openchrome which only worked in 1600x1200 although my laptop screen's native resolution is 1280x800. Changing the resolution made it all distorted. Anyway, my main problem is that I tried uninstalling openchrome and replaced it with an xorg s3 driver. It absolutely does not work at all. In linux I get to grub,have the option to boot into Windows(Which I am in now.),Debian, and Debian Recovery. In linux I can only get to the recovery console with the 'root' command line. I have tried
apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-openchrome
and the same for vesa but it comes up that it could not resolve the hostname ftp.ie.debian.org (Not sure if that url is the exact one but its similar). Thanks in advance
