Sorry. Not received. It may be stripped out by the list manager.

Try posting it at http://paste.debian.net/ or similar (if you wouldn't
mind) and post the link.


Thanks for your patience, I guess that's enough hardware and OS
information (apart from the X log). The log 'should' show what the
graphics system is trying to do - and where it's failing.

Depending on that we might need some more (simple) information about the
installation status of some packages and/or system configs.

The problem 'should' be simply solvable - or there'd be more google
hit's for problems with that hardware and ubuntu.

Kind regards
