The old xorg.conf file apparently has a ghost, as the "failure"
message still refers to an inability to find the former nVidia
card, which is sitting on the top of my desk.
Where might this "ghost" configuration file reside ?
I know that both the "xserver-xorg-video-trident" and the
"xserver-xorg-video-radeon" drivers are present because apt-get
pronounces them to be the newest versions.
To make matters worse, the ethernet card, while pronounced up and
running by the OS, even connected, stalls the 'puter with the
statement, "ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): ETH0: LINK BECOMES READY."
[Sorry 'bout the all-caps, but I'm quoting the message that debian
stated.] ÂThis happens whether I start the 'puter with the cable
in ... or when I plug it in after the command prompt appears.
For the time being that's a secondary problem. It's not plugged
in, an easy but temporary solution.
