Debian Woody Xfree86 abit Geforce 4 FX 5200 (EE) No devices detected ---> no screens


Hi all

After trying mandrake and red hat, I decided to install debian.

The installation process went well and after downloading security updates and installing the x server, I tried to start my graphical windows manager. I didn't work because of 2 (1?) errors:

(EE) No devices detected, resulting I sppose in a "no screens found".

After seeing that my geforce 4 FX 5200 was not in the list of supported video card of the non upgraded nv drivers I decided to upgrade to the latest nvidia drivers. For that I used this how-to:

http://www.badoual.org/dir/repositor...deb.html.xhtml

I succeded to install all packages and I can see that more video cards are supported but I get the same error:

(EE) No devices detected

No screens found

Does anybody know how to fix this really annoying problem?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Here is my XFree86Config-4 and the log file of startx:

Your driver is from Tue Mar 26 2002 - there where no geforcefx cards back then.Try a new driver - my fx5600 works with it.

Where do I have to download it?

Thanks a lot for your answer, but where may I download them?

I have tried to use the file released by nvidia, the .run file.

I have been able to compile a driver for my kernel but when I want to load the module, it complains that the file has not been compiled for my kernel...

I used apt-get to retrieve the nvidia-kernel-src and nvidia-glx-src, my kernel is 2.2.20-idepci and I downloaded the kernel headers too...

Any idea?

The new nvidia driver supposedly only works with the 2.4.xx kernel series.You'll have to go 2.4 if you want to use your card or search in the older nvidia drivers if any of those support 2.2.x kernels and geforcefx - I doubt it.
You can also try google with something like 'kernel 2.2 and geforcefx'.There might be a patch floating around somewhere.You can also check the mailing list archives at debian.

The easiest way would be to apt-get a new kernel.I never did that when I used debian.Just did it the ond fashioned way and got the kernel from http://www.kernel.org
There is a how-to there.Just have a look at your kernel.log in /var/log and do a modprobe to see what modules are loaded by the kernel - you'll need those with the new kernel.
If I where you and never compiled a kernel I would try it with apt-get.If you don't have it you might consider installing 'synaptic' as a grphical frontend to apt to see what options you got there (there are a lot of different kernels available for debian).

Thanks a lot for your help! All of you!

After going to a nice BBQ, I succeded to compile a new kernel, with my own settings ( SB live, ViaRhine Lancard,...)

All went succesfully and I have been able to boot my new kernel.. I choose a 2.4.18.

I think my graphical interface works but (because) my Screen turned off... Frequency had to be out of range.... (lol)

I'm going to reinstall all the system and choose carefully the frequency and resolution..

For the other poeple reading this thread, the (EE) Device not detected also happens when the bios is misconfigured:

Assign Bios to VGA must be enabled
Plug and Play (PnP) must be disabled.

I hope it will work faster cause in belgium, it 2h30 in the morning...

Thanks a lot again and I'll keep you posted!

you don't need a how-to; just go google and look for debian and kde3.There are plenty of sources you can add to your sources.list and install it with apt.
