    I have a partial xorg.conf

    Ok, when i go into my xorg.conf for 8.04, it seems i only have a partial file. Here is my file:
    Code:
    # xorg.conf (X.Org 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
    
    Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier    "Generic Keyboard"
        Driver        "kbd"
        Option        "XkbRules"    "xorg"
        Option        "XkbModel"    "pc105"
        Option        "XkbLayout"    "us"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier    "Configured Mouse"
        Driver        "mouse"
        Option        "CorePointer"
        Option        "Emulate3Buttons"    "true"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Device"
        Identifier    "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
        Identifier    "Configured Monitor"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
        Identifier    "Default Screen"
        Monitor        "Configured Monitor"
        Device        "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    
    Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier    "Default Layout"
        Screen        "Default Screen"
    EndSection

    I think that it is fine, its just the generic xorg without any extra settings such as video card settings. If you install your graphics driver several more options should be added automatically.

    Where do i install the i810 driver at?

    EDIT: I found my driver in Synaptic and reinstalled it but there is no change in the xorg.conf.

    What graphics card do you have? I should think that there would be a "Driver" section in your xorg. Are you getting the correct screen resolutions?

    Re: I have a partial xorg.conf

    I'm still thinking you should have a lot more in your xorg. Try configuring your xorg with this command:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

    It is still exactly the same, even after your command.

    Re: I have a partial xorg.conf

    Interesting. I should think it would use the Driver "Intel"...Is there any problems you are experiencing?
