GeorgeS069sid: I have the fglrx modules compiled andinstalled and I think I have xorg.conf setup properly and I don't get any errors in Xorg.log but,when X starts up all I get is a blank screen
mikeccoh god ati
sidGeorgeS069: What model card?

phorce1gee, I installed a redeon 9800 pro AIW last night. Used the debian packages. Works fine (except I'm trying to figure out how to adjust gamma, it's a littlr dark)
mikeccwhen i do tasksel install desktop it says, aptitude failed (255)
GeorgeS069xorg.conf is here http://www.pastebin.ca/392787 and Xorg.log is here http://www.pastebin.ca/392769
abrotmanmikecc: what WM/DE do you want ?
mikeccabrotman: umm i dont know im just trying to get things installed an i assume the desktop "task" has a bunch of utilities preselected
abrotman: i guess blackbox
you meant windowmanager by WM right?
abrotmanmikecc: apt-get install xorg blackbox xdm
phorce1mikecc: tasksel installs a full Gnome desktop. I've been removing bits and pieces by hand for weeks after using it.
hattaI always prefer to start with a minimal install and apt-get things as needed
easier than grabbing everything and removing cruft
phorce1hatta: I got in a hurry <sigh>
mikeccphorce1: haha then ill do what abortman said :)
thanks abrotman
thanks for the info phorce1
maniencehi, is there a way to adjust the screen resolution in the normal console view, because the standard actually is 640-480
wolsmanience: sure. use fb and give the kernel a parameter "vga=ask"
there are all kinds of framebuffer things to use. apt-cache search for them
maniencewols: what do u mean with fb=
abrotmanmanience: you mean change the console resolution or change the X resolution from the terminal ?
gotakuIs there a way to completely remove KDE from my system, including all the kde applications?
manienceabrotman: is there another way like the x one?
abrotmanlike wols said
manienceabrotman: i thought it would only working with x
wolsgotaku: remove kdelibs
abrotman!remove kde
dpkgfrom memory, remove kde is aptitude purge kdelibs-data kdelibs4c2a
wolsall kde programs depend on it. there might be a kde-commons, remove that too
so hated it has its own factoid?
abrotman!remove gnome
