Actually I had done a fresh install of Squeeze already before going through the steps again and finding that out of date lib.

So just run Wheezy anyways is the suggestion? I'll give it a shot I guess.

Last update, I this should be resolved now.

I update to Wheezy, and the integrated graphics are working perfectly!

However (there's always a however...) it now seems there's a serious kink in the system.

Gnome terminal doesn't load properly, so I thought I'd just remove and re-install it. xterm comes up fine, but I get a lot of errors pertaining to commands not being found in $PATH. I try to export a new PATH value to include the proper directories, and I get command not found errors.

I'm also getting command not found errors for commands like shutdown, reboot, export, etc...basically anything that's external to the terminal it seems.


So should I just reinstall Wheezy from scratch, or is there an easy way to fix this besides a reinstall?

I had an upgrade problem from squeeze to wheezy & found it easier to use tasksel from single user (rescue-mode)
With tasksel you can remove DE & then reinstall.

As for the commands not found and the path issue, check your /etc/profile file. The first 6 uncommented lines should look like this:

Code:
if [ "`id -u`" -eq 0 ]; then
  PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin"
else
  PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/games:/usr/games"
fi
export PATH
Also, make sure the package base-files is installed.
