I don't know what I might have done differen't but this cmd just gave me a more logical answer.
lspci | grep VGA #the answer is# 00.01.0 VGA compatible controller: intel corporation 8210E dc-133 (cgi) chipset graphics controller (rev 03) And I do see the error. The vga is supposed to be VGA. I don't remember what someone posted origionaly. I bet if I get that xf86 instaled it will be a lot different.

I don't understand any of that.

And remember, lspci has nothing to do with the driver!

Of course, lspci can show you what driver is being used for a particular piece of hardware ... lspci -v tells you the kernel module loaded for that particular piece of hardware (just in case it somehow loaded the wrong one).
