Strange problem after updating gnome from a apt mirror


Hi all.
Recently I installed the base system from a Sarge CD and then went on to install X via apt.
Everything went well and I was able to login to my inst.
On reboot it says VideoRAM too low and agpgart module not found.
My dmesg says -

I tried looking around on LQ, but tweaking the xorg conf file did not help.

Any assistance will be very helpful.
BTW I dont have a swap space, does that matter?

Thanks,

It sounds as if not having a swap space is possibly causing your problem, as it mentions that your VideoRAM is too low. The computer begins to use swap space on the hard drive when RAM is insufficient. I guess it might be possible to instruct it to proceed as if you had less Video RAM for the X configuration you are using.

You could try to post here also;

Why are you installing Sarge ? Etch is currently the stable version.

I would be curious if you have installed Sarge I would bet your /etc/apt/sources.list points at stable which is actually Etch now so you are possibly mixing systems (oldstable and stable) without realizing it..



And then I see this line in your Xorg log..
Quote:
Build Operating System: Linux Debian (xorg-server 2:1.3.0.0.dfsg-12lenny2)
Lenny is Testing.. which is a lot newer than either stable or oldstable..

2.6.8-2-386 This kernel indicates a Debian Sarge (oldstable) install..

Please post the output of the following

cat /etc/debian_version
cat /etc/apt/sources.list


In the mean time you may want to consider re-installing your system using an etch install CD... You don't have much time invested in the system yet for configuration and customization, so starting over with the current version would be a plus..

Problem Resolved

Farslayer thanks a lot for your inputs.
You were spot on.
I was trying to apt get packages from Etch into Sarge.

As told by you, I got the Etch iso image and installed it on my sys.
Its working perfectly.

Just as an after thought, why does not apt compain when we try to install packages across versions?

Installing packages across versions is quite common for some people and is referred to as a 'mixed system'.

When configuring your sources list you can specify the distribution by NAME or BRANCH

NAME - BRANCH
Sarge - oldstable
etch - stable
lenny - testing
sid - unstable

if you configure your sources list using the name such as etch or sarge it will always pull packages from that branch of Debian. If you put stable in your sources list as the newer testing moves to stable so will your system.. When you installed sarge by default it had the sources list pointing at stable, but sarge is now oldstable so it was pulling from etch..

I know it seems a bit confusing at first nut you'll get used to it. by always using the name of the build you are using you avoid an accidental crossover between builds as they migrate.

and don't even consider running a mixed system until you are VERY familiar with Debian at which point you will also understand the advantages and disadvantages of doing so.

Hope that helps.. (either that or I just confused you more )
