    I can't start the x for Backtrack 2.0 in live CD. The monitor is a model Lenovo ThinkVision L171

    I've already tried xorgconf and another types of x like flux but i didn't work.

    Here are the messages of error that I found in: /var/log/xorg.0.log

    Code:

     for help. 
    Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information.
    Here are the xorg.conf that it's located in the same computer (with the same monitor) but running Ubuntu installed in the hard disk:

    Code:
    # xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
    #
    # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
    # values from the debconf database.
    #
    # Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
    # (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
    #
    # This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
    # if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
    # package.

    # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
    # again, run the following command:
    #   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

    I have the same problem with a stock dell inspiron and a 15" lcd monitor. video detection & configuration has been the bane of linux since the beginning and it's still a problem here. Bootup always shows me "you passed an undefined node number". I've tried all the various options presented on startup, with xconf, etc., and still eventually get a black screen that says "Cannot display this video mode". blah....
