startx problem


Hello everyone

I just installed Debian on my system, and I've got a small problem in getting X set up. After doing my research I'm almost certain that my problem is that I don't know my PCI bus address for my video card (or whatever the heck it is; as you can tell, I'm kinda new) I've run lspci, but I'm not sure what to make of the greek that comes up on my screen.

Help on decoding this would be great.

Did you take a look at your /proc/pci file?

cat /proc/pci

It has all the info you need about your pci devices. Just out of curiousity, how do you know that this is a pci issue? Did you do:

XFree86 -configure

Actually, I gathered that it was a PCI/AGP problem from the output; I think I'll post that because I'm probably wrong anyway...Here's the log file of the problem.


This is a pre-release version of XFree86, and is not supported in any
way. Bugs may be reported to XFree86@XFree86.Org and patches submitted
to fixes@XFree86.Org. Before reporting bugs in pre-release versions,
please check the latest version in the XFree86 CVS repository
(http://www.XFree86.Org/cvs)

XFree86 Version 4.1.0.1 / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6510)

If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your card is
newer than the above date, look for a newer version before
reporting problems. (See http://www.XFree86.Org/FAQ)

And by the way, my card is a GeForce 4MX; just in case that matters; although I haven't experienced problems with it in any other distros
