Title: xorg.conf (resolved)
Post by: flip city on November 16, 2009, 09:02:16 pm
data incomplete in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf
at least one Device section is required

What does this mean ?

Hmm... have you done anything to your xorg.conf file lately? And when do you get that message? on boot?

Yess...tried the various drivers to see if a rendering problem with FF 3.5 could be something to do with the driver. radeon was the last one used.
That message (see above post) is seen after I used TUI then vxconf to try to install another driver. I continually get a X configuration error. Those aforementioned lines are the details of the X server output error.

also Failed to load module fgl.renamed.libdri (module does not exist)

Check and see if you have the file: /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup or .old or something like that. If you do, you could delete the current xorg.conf and rename the old/backup one back to xorg.conf to get back to a known-to-work-configuration (assuming the last one worked of course.)

the xorg.conf.backup file is there. just uncertain if it is a working configuration,since I have tried to change drivers with no luck. would using SKEL be of help here?

I don't quite remember what's in SKEL. If it has a xorg.conf.backup restorer utility then I guess so though you should be able to do it from CLI/TUI also.
