Hello odjb,

I'm not sure if the X-server is using the adequate module, it seems you're using a /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, yould you please post this?

Another thing you may try would be to rename the xorg.conf file to (for example) xorg.conf_bkp so that it can't be loaded, then restart the X-server. Maybe the X-server finds the settings by itself.

Yes, that is what it should use, but I thought to explore the xorg.conf file in order to look which module there is configured.

From odjb's Xorg.0.log, I saw that X11 loaded the "Intel" driver (xserver-xorg-driver-intel).

Well, normaly the xorg-settings are calculated by hal, so one does not need an xorg.conf file.

But if you create an xorg.conf file (in the /etc/X11 directory), this file will be sourced by the X-server. So you may create an xorg.conf file with only the driver settings.

I'd suggest to read the manpage for xorg.conf

Hi,

I tried to create a Xorg.conf as follows but it completely screwed up the display. I Had to go back to console mode to remove it and remove the displays.xml too. What should I insert in Xorg.conf ?

Code:
           Section "Device"
               Identifier "Videocard0"
               Driver     "i915"
           EndSection

I found some help for you though it is for gentoo http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/xorg-config.xml it should still help because it helped me with a few problems. I would look down at the xorg.conf section. Hope I can help a bit.

I realize that you can login after unplugging the monitor. So this means, that the screenresolution is not adequate set, or not mechanically adapted respectively.

Like most of what moromendas has posted, this post was plagiarized. Why does he plagiarize? To generate posts that he can attach his spam sig to. He was never a participant, only a spammer.
