    Input not supported - Debian Lenny +Gnome

    I just run a fresh install of debian Lenny on my Acer Veriton M464 Machine,

    I ran it with the defaults and had to use noapic to get it working.

    After the install it boots but it shows me a box on the screen saying Input not supported.

    I have looked for my xorg.conf and there is no X11 folder let alone no xorg.conf.

    Can anyone help me get my Widescreen disply working.

    do you have gnome installed? it sounds as if you haven't installed xserver or gdm.

    if you haven't installed xserver, gdm and gnome and want to try that, the following commands run from root should help you.

    apt-get install gdm xserver-xorg gnome
    i hope this helps

    Sometimes, xorg.conf may be present in /usr/local/etc/X11/ instead of regular /etc/X11/.

    Set keyboard types, monitor refresh rates, drivers properly. Mostly the questionaire is self explanatory. Once properly executed the program generates a xorg.conf file. Reboot and see if your problem is solved. The following may help you though its for slackware. X Configuration
