X problems when upgrading to Ibex
I just upgraded from Hardy to Ibex. Everything seemed to go quite well but after I rebooted I got an error saying "(EE) Default device is not PCI"
I fiddled with the settings a lot and finally found some threads to help me (used another computer).
What I did was apt-get remove --purge Nvidia* after which I downloaded the latest Nvidia drivers 180.29 and installed them.
From lspci | grep VGA I got an address 2:0:0 which I added to my xorg.conf as busid "PCI:2:0:0" after which starting X gave me a login screen that flickered in black and white occasionally showing me the login screen behind it. I couldn't enter my login details.
After some more googling I changed the HorizSync and VertRefresh to reflect those of my monitor (Samsung SyncMaster 226BW). Starting X after that showed my background and it tried to load gnome-panels which disappeared soon. I saw a mouse cursor that turned into a loading clock every once in a while and some outlines of windows were flickering on the screens. This went on for quite a while.
Then I Ctrl-Alt-F1'd into tty and got a message saying something about module type1 not loaded. With some google advice I commented module type1 out from xorg.conf and rebooted.
After this the black and white blinking on my login screen happened again. No matter what I did (even copying over my xorg.conf with the settings that got me to desktop earlier) I couldn't make it go away and I'm still getting this blinking.
Any advice on what to do here?
EDIT: tty is giving me 4 lines saying "no block devices found"
Don't talk to strangers..
