Installing packages

Main packages:

poldek -u  xorg-xserver-server \
xorg-driver-input-keyboard \

Graphic driver

poldek -u xorg-driver-video-XXX

]where XXX is one of nv/ati/nvidia and so on depend on your graphic card. See package description for more information.


First of all, just try to start X server.


Nowadays Xorg auto detection is quite good.

If, you want to make some changes, generate xorg.conf:

X -configure
mv ~/ /etc/X11/xorg.conf

If something go wrong, look to /var/log/Xorg.0.log for details. Errors are marked by double E - (EE) ex.

(EE) Failed to load module "ati" (module does not exist, 0)

It means that probably, graphic diver isn't installed.
