    Default Display works on Live-CD, but not when it's install to the HD

    Hi,

    Strange thing...
    When i run the bt4-mod Live-CD the display fully works.
    With 1280x800 full resolution at 60Hz and 256 Video RAM.
    But after i have installed it to the HD and run it, I can't start X.

    When I check witch driver is loaded while running the Live-CD it tells me it is VESA driver (generic)

    I've tried replacing the /etc/X11/xorg.conf with /etc/X11/xorg.conf-vesa
    With no result.

    I also looked in the Live-CD /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. And it looks the same as the one i got on the HD.

    Any one got a clue on what to do now?

    When i run Xorg the display just draw the default screen with the mouse and just hang there. I can move the mouse thought.
    Oh, yeah. I have no swap space (irrelevant info i guess)

    Try fix-vesa before starting the xserver.
    Also the type of video card may be relevant info to provide.
    There is probably a supported driver in the repos.

    Hi,

    Oh that's tight, my bad. Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family is the name of it.

    Been googeling a bit more, guess i need to install xserver-xorg-video-intel
    I have found this very helping,
    hxxp://blaise.ca/blog/2007/07/01/ubuntu-704-feisty-fawn-with-an-hp-compaq-6710b/

    I cant get the wlan led on the laptop to glow yet, so I can't use apt-get.
    I've download
    hxxp://xorg.freedesktop.org/archive/individual/driver/xf86-video-intel-2.9.1.tar.gz
    to a USB and tried to install it with no success. The make command doe's not seem to work.

    ./configure && make && make install

    Right?

    (Maby should move this thread to the newbie section)

    *Edit
    The fix-vesa command did not do the trick, sadly.

    ... it works with the Live-CD!

    I shouldn't need to install any drivers.
    I needs to be the xorg.conf hmm.
