Problems for a newbie Starting X
#1

I am trying to install debian on a HP Vectra D9897A

 

I am tryign to set up the graphics card

 

A Intel 810 chipset

 

 

I run xf86config and set the the card to be a Intel 810 chipset

 

but when I startx i get the error add/screeninit failed for driver 0

 

Not sure how to take a copy of the config file and a copy of the full log file if any one can tell me how to do this I can post them as well.

you probably need to add support agppart and the intel chipset in the kernel. if i remember correctly.
