The newer X may not need an xorg.conf. In Debian
Code: Select all
dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
should rerun the code that generates it. You probably need some info about your cardto go beyond that so run
Code: Select all
lspci
to see what display adaptor you have. Then you can start making decisions like if you have an Nvidia card you can install the nvidia drivers and if yo uhave an ATI card you can install their proprietary drivers.

Do you have Xorg loaded? Did it get removed when you installed? I think smallchange is right, but if he is not, reinstall Xorg.

You can also try
Code: Select all
# Xorg -configure

( do this as root)

So this was a brand new install? You did not add/remove anything from the install or make any major changes?

Why did you change and then delete xorg.conf?

i edited screen resolutions and make some changes in xorg.conf. When i reloaded debian, graphical mode was not start. I search this and i read a article. They says "if you delete xorg.conf, debian is rebuid it" and then i deleted xorg.conf. this unsolved my problem.

In that screenshot the prompt looks odd. It has a pound sign and looks like it has the hostname but yet shows no user...are you logged in as a normal user or as root?

Along with that, the 'module mismatch' and 'ABI major version' messages leads me to think you have remove/installed something incorrectly. Have you made other changes?


To generate a good xorg.conf then use the following commands
Code: Select all
su -c ' Xorg -configure'

su -c 'mv /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf'
